(NEW CASTLE) - A New Castle car wash change machine paid off like a Las Vegas slot for one man.
71-year-old Eldon McCammack put a dollar in a change machine Saturday at the Trojan Car Wash in the city about 40 miles east of Indianapolis. In return, he got 1,042 quarters, or $260.50.
McCammack says he first grabbed a top from a trash can to catch the coins. Another customer found a plastic container to catch the overflow.
McCammack brought his jackpot to the New Castle police station, where officers counted the quarters, put them in an evidence locker and called the car wash's owner.
McCammack says he later went back and washed his car.
