LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police apprehended a man the fire department called "very strange" after he was allegedly caught stuffing cash in a washing machine early Sunday morning.
It happened at an apartment complex at the corner of E. Main St. and N. Brook St. The fire department went to the scene after the fire alarm had been activated. When they arrived, they allegedly found 21-year-old Jose Veras of Radcliff, Ky., "running around and acting very strange."
Police were later called to the scene to deal with him.
When officers arrived they allegedly found cash, "laying all over the area." Police also say that several residents were out in the hallways complaining about Veras was banging on their doors and running around.
Police eventually found Veras on the first floor in the laundry room, allegedly trying to stuff money into a washing machine. Officers say he did not live at the apartment, had no reason to be there and -- what's more -- was the one who pulled the fire alarm in the first place.
Police say they found over $1,000 scattered throughout the halls and in the washer.
Veras was arrested and charged with criminal trespassing and disorderly conduct.
