Money-changing machines are simple things – put a dollar in, get four quarters out. A defendant was caught trying to game that simplicity. He attached a piece of dental floss to the dollar bill and kept inserting it far enough to trigger the machine, then pulling it back out with the floss, stealing 4 quarters at a time.
Unfortunately for our imaginative criminal, his gamble did not pay off. For one thing, his state recognized the crime of breaking and entering into such a machine. Then the Court, adding insult to injury, held that there was no need for his hand or other body part to enter the machine to constitute B&E. He could break-and-enter via a dollar bill and dental floss.
