LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man has been accused of taking a whole lot of change from a local car wash.
According to an arrest report, it happened at the Dogs N Suds car wash on Dixie Hwy., near Johnsontown Road, shortly after midnight on Thursday.
Police say they saw 22-year-old Andrew B. Beahl and others walking through the parking lot of the car wash. An officer stopped them in the bays.
Beahl was allegedly holding a change dispenser from the vending machine on the wall next to him. Police say the door to the vending machine was open, and Beahl told them he was there to get some Armor All polish for his car -- but the vending machine didn't have Armor All in it.
Beahl allegedly told them that he pulled on the door of the machine, and it opened. He allegedly said that -- with the door open -- he could see the coin dispenser, and he "did not want to leave it."
Police say Beahl and the suspects who were with him were all wearing dark hoodies, gloves and grey masks. Beahl was also allegedly wearing white and blue gloves, and had a pair of pliers in his pocket. Police say there were pry marks on the vending machine.
The change dispenser contained 33 dimes, 15 nickels and 140 quarters, according to police. Officers also say they found an additional 56 quarters, two nickels and six dimes that had been spilled in the bottom of the machine.
Beahl was arrested and charged with theft. Information on his alleged accomplices is not immediately available.
