A man with 68 thousand euros in cash on him jumped into the Maas river in Rotterdam while trying to get away from the police on Thursday morning, the Rotterdam police said on Twitter.
According to the police, officers addressed the man because he showed suspicious behavior. He could not explain why he had so much cash on him.
"What do you do if you have 68 thousand euros in your pocket, cannot explain this and have the police right in front of you? A man on Prins Hendrikkade only saw one way out", the police tweeted. "With the money, he jumped into the water."
