Indiana car wash coin changer gives generous gift to customer

A car wash customer scooped $260.50, but he turned over his winnings to police.

Eldon McCammack put a dollar in the change machine Saturday at the Trojan Car Wash in this city about 40 miles (64 kilometers) east of Indianapolis. In return, he got 1,042 quarters, or $260.50 (€178.7).

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.
