From Reader's Digest, February 1967

Captain Joseph Dussia, former head of the Pennsylvania State Police
Crime Laboratory, is an accomplished safe-blower and lock-picker. His
skill came in handy when he and a fellow officer were stranded on a
road one night, their car and police radio disabled. A phone box was
nearby, but they didn't have any change. Captain Dussia entered the
booth, picked the locks, dropped a dollar bill into the coin box, took
out some change, re-assembled everything, and called a break-down

A few days later, he got this message from a man at the telephone
company: "We've got something you should investigate. We found a
dollar bill in one of our coin boxes."
