Man pays $72 for a taco, says 'Merry Christmas'

SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP) - December 20, 2009

A Taco Bell manager in Ohio says a man who appeared drunk walked into the restaurant earlier this week and handed him $72 for just one taco.

The manager tells police near the northern Ohio town of Sandusky that the customer who seemed to be in his early 20s refused to take back the money and told workers "Merry Christmas."

Manager Aaron Ohm says he thought for sure the man would return for his money, but he so far he hasn't shown up.

Police are holding on to the money as evidence and say if it's not claimed in 60 days, the store manager will get a late Christmas gift.
