DULUTH - A Duluth man was arrested for stumbling in a roadway outside a karaoke bar Saturday, carrying more than $4,000 in cash, police said.

Incident gives new meaning to windfall
DULUTH - Police are looking for up to seven black men who allegedly chased and took money in a parking lot after it blew from a bank employee's hands in a gust of wind.
The employee told police he was servicing an ATM machine Thursday at a Bank of America branch on Satellite Boulevard, which required him to remove a "large stack of currency," according to a police report. A stiff gust of wind blew the cash from his hands across a nearby parking lot, he said.
The man said patrons from a nearby Barnacles Bar and Grill, Olive Garden and people in several passing vehicles ran to the parking lot and scooped up the money. He described the suspects as up to seven black men.
The employee retrieved about $6,000 from the scene but was unsure how much was taken. The case is under investigation.
