COTTONWOOD HEIGHTS, Utah (KSL/NBC) - Two men armed with a vacuum were arrested after police say they failed to make a clean getaway.
An officer spotted two men acting suspiciously at an automated car wash in Cottonwood Heights, Utah.

The men had attempted to change their vehicle's license plate number by using black electrical tape to turn a D into a B, said Young. The trailing officer spotted the altered plate and pulled them over.
