The Blotter: Turn and face the change June 14 2007
At a car wash on Piedmont Avenue, an employee said he hired a 21-year-old man to drive cars, but customers complained that they were missing money from their cars. The employee said he put eight marked quarters and three marked $1 bills in the cupholder of a car. (They were marked with a black Magic Marker, he said.) Then, he told the 21-year-old to move the same car about 15 feet. When the 21-year-old got out of the car, one marked quarter was missing, he said. The 21-year-old was arrested for "fraudulent schemes" ... for taking 25 cents. (Blotter aside: Don't spend it all in one place.)
