A man who appeared drunk walked into a Taco Bell restaurant earlier this week and handed the manager $72 for one taco, the manager said.

The manager told 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 said he thought for sure the man would return for his money, but he so far he hasn't shown up.

Police decided to hold on to the money as evidence. They said if the cash wasn't claimed in 60 days, the store manager would receive the Christmas gift.
