    A brazen daylight armed robbery of a Wells Fargo branch in San Jose led to a chase and apprehension near Gilroy, according to police. It also led to a lot of cash being scattered across the Highway 101.

    At 10:39 a.m. police said they saw three suspects, armed with handguns, conducting a "takeover robbery" of the branch near 3300 San Felipe Rd.

    The robbers fled the branch, heading down the 101 toward Gilroy. During the pursuit, the suspects dumped stolen bank money out the window on to the freeway, according to a police news release.

    The suspects then stopped at 10th Street in Gilroy and surrendered without incident.

    Police temporarily closed the highway to gather the scattered money.

    A gun was found in the silver Jeep, along with a police scanner. The Jeep was confirmed stolen in Greenfield, Calif.

    Three suspects are in custody.
