Bill owns a company that manufactures and installs car wash systems. (Magic Wand Car Wash Systems, just in case you want to buy one.) Bill's company installed a car wash system in Frederick, Md. Now understand that these are complete systems, including the money changer and money taking machines. The problem started when the new owner complained to Bill that he was
losing significant amounts of money from
his coin machines each week. He went as far as to accuse
Bill's employees of having a key to
the boxes and ripping him off. Bill just
couldn't believe that his people would do that,
so they setup a camera to catch the thief in action.
Well, they did catch him on film! That's a bird sitting on the change slot of the machine.
The bird had to go down into
the machine, and
back up inside to get to the money!
That's three quarters
he has in his beak!
Another amazing thing is
that it was not
just one bird -- there were several
working together.

Once they identified the thieves, they found over $4000 in quarters on the roof of the car wash and more under a nearby tree.

And you thought you had heard of everything by now!!!
