Car Wash Thief

This is so incredible.

Magic Wand Car Wash Systems installed a car wash system in Frederick, Md. for a gentleman. This is a complete system including the money changer and money taking machines. The owner of the car wash complained to Magic Wand that he was loosing significant amounts of money from his coin machines each week. He went as far as to accuse Magic Wand employees of having a key to the boxes and ripping him off. The owner of Magic Wand couldn't believe that his people would be stealing so he setup a video trap for the thief; they caught the thief in the act!

The bird had to go down in the machine and back up to get to the money!

That's three quarters the bird has in its mouth! (Below)

Another amazing thing is that it was not just one bird, there were several working together. Once they identified the thief, they found over $4000.00 in quarters on the roof of the car wash and more under a nearby tree.
