Employee finds drugs inside car, gets fired

SCOTTSDALE, AZ — Carwash owner claims the employee had no right to remove anything from the customer's car...

SCOTTSDALE, AZ — A carwash employee who said he found drugs inside a customer's car has been fired, an azfamily.com story reported.

The Dec. 17 story quoted the Danny's Family Car Wash employee, Joshua Dahl, who stated, "I had found a rather large bag of what I assumed at the time to be either cocaine or crack cocaine." He then gave it to his boss, who told him to put it back in the car. The employee didn't think that was the right move, so he notified the police.
"I was told that if I would bring it to the police officer I would have been fired…" Dahl stated in the story.

Carwash owner Danny Hendon's lawyer, Eric Falbe, stated in the story, "He removed something out of a customer's car without permission and at that point, he exceeded his scope of authority, so he was terminated for that. We don't have any way of determining whether substances are illicit or non illicit, so we're not in the business of making those determinations."

Dahl said he stands by his decision, even though it hurts not having a job. "…Coming into the Christmas season it's going to be hard on my finances, but do I feel I did what was right both morally and ethically? Yes," he said in the story.
