Just When You Thought You’d Seen It All MkI

That's a bird disappearing in the change tray of the machine!

In Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada there is a coin operated car wash that was losing money. Big money, but all from the coin machines used to give change to operate the car wash. The owner accused the company that had installed the system of having staff with keys who were coming around after hours and ripping off the coin machine. Not a nice thing to say so worth setting up a sting operation with some cameras and seeing who gets caught in the act.

The thief turned out to be birds. Several of them were getting inside the machine and emerging with several quarters at a time. A search of the rafters and roof of the car wash found over $4,000 in 25 cent pieces (16,000 plus)! Crime is everywhere apparently and you can never be sure just who it is that is ripping you off!

And coming out with the loot!
