Hope He Had a Tight Belt
Stephen Jackson allegedly robbed a Charter One Bank in Cleveland early in the day. Unfortunately, the dye pack went off and stained all the currency. He evidently decided the best way to get cash he could use was through a coin changer. So he went to the Ultimate Car Wash in Lakewood, Ohio, and started feeding one red-dye-stained dollar bill after another into the machine.
The people in the carwash found this suspicious, and reported his behavior to the police. By the time they came and arrested him, his pockets were bulging with 1,800 quarters - about 24 pounds worth!
