BATTLE CREEK, Mich. — Stories of laundry break-ins and theft are far too common. Owners are turning to high-tech equipment to protect their profits. However, police in Battle Creek, Mich., were called to deal with a rather unusual money-related action: someone throwing around money in a laundry.
A man walked into the store and reportedly encountered a woman who asked him for help. The man threw two $1 bills on the floor and left. He returned later and left a more powerful calling card. This time, he threw 10 $20 bills across the counter. The laundry owner suspected the man was mentally disturbed. The police are holding the $202 as evidence in case the man returns to claim his cash.
