SALEM, Ark. —You show me a coin laundry and I’ll show you plenty of snacks. Coin laundries and vending go hand in hand. However, one individual may soon discover why it’s far simpler to consume tasty treats than place them in dryers.
In February, a laundry customer found something rather unusual in the dryer as he went to put his clothes in — a “Ding Dong.” Recently, a surveillance camera at the same laundry reportedly showed a Fed Ex worker bringing in a box of the chocolate snack cakes to the store, according to KSPR News. The man, according to the police report, was known to visit that laundry and watch some TV. Little did he know that this time he was on TV, and being watched as he put the Ding Dongs in the dryer.
The man has pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct. If found guilty, he could face a fine of less than $200.
Fortunately, no one used the dryers and ruined their clothes. If they had, it would have been a higher misdemeanor charge of criminal mischief with a fine of up to $1,000 and up to a year in jail.
