TULSA, Oklahoma -

Police say some crooks took a different approach to try to steal money from a machine that takes money at a car wash.

Surveillance video shows them driving up in a black, newer model Ford F-150, and then the driver covers the machine's camera at the 11th and Newhaven Fiesta Mart.

Moments later, the folks at Fiesta Mart got an error message, saying the machine wasn't working.

"They found out that it totally had eaten up the machine. So, these guys either sprayed some kind of acid in there or some kind of salt water, but it ended up costing about $5,200 to fix it," said Sgt. Kurt Dodd.

If you recognize the driver, call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.
