Car Wash Changer Pays Off Like Slot

(AP) An Indiana car wash change machine paid off like a Las Vegas slot for one customer, but he turned over his booty to police.

Eldon McCammack put a dollar in the change machine Saturday at the Trojan Car Wash in this city about 40 miles east of Indianapolis. In return, he got 1,042 quarters, or $260.50.

McCammack, 71, said he first grabbed a top from a trash can to catch the coins. Another customer found a plastic container for the overflow.

McCammack brought the jackpot to the police station, where officers counted the quarters, put them in an evidence locker and called the car wash's owner.

He went back later and washed his car.
