MISSOULA, MT — A customer is in jail here after he used his truck to destroy a vacuum at a carwash, KPAX reported.

The July 15 story stated that a transient man tied the vacuum cleaner’s hose to the bumper of his truck then drove away, pulling the entire machine from the concrete pedestal. The man then got out of the truck, untied the hose and fled the scene.

A police officer said the man was upset that Frontier Super Stop’s vacuum machine had stolen his money.

The transient was arrested and is being charged with felony criminal mischief. Damages were estimated at approximately $4,000 for the carwash.
