Nervous security workers searching for a missing bag containing $223,600 (£138,000) breathed a sigh of relief when an honest probation officer returned the money untouched.

Jessica Luebke, who works for the Jefferson district office in Los Angeles, found the sack of cash on Scotsdale Drive after it had fallen out of an armoured vehicle.

The crew that was supposed to be looking after the money had been frantically searching for their lost bundle, which contained $20 and $100 bills.

When they eventually arrived back at the location they had dropped the bag, they found Luebke standing with police officers.

The probation worker spoke of her shock at discovering the huge sum.

‘I turned around immediately as soon as it registered what it actually was – that it was a huge bag of cash,’ she told Fox News.

‘I just called Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office straight away.’

The bag of money had fallen out of the car while it was leaving Boomtown Casino.
