It was hovering over the center of the circle and after a couple of minutes it dropped what appeared to be money,” MLive’s Melvin Blohm said. “Once people realized the cash was real, they swarmed to pick it up.”

According to Blohm, the drone dropped an estimated $50 in single dollar bills before flying off. The money appears to fall from one of four compartments in the device. Another compartment was reportedly already emptied, and the others looked to have more cash inside.

The operators of the drone, Blohm said, were seemingly controlling it from atop the nearby JW Marriott hotel.
