SAN DIEGO (AP) — San Diego County officials say a charity laundry didn't come clean about its use of grant money and they want $6,000 returned.
Auntie Helen's Fluff 'n' Fold in San Diego provides free laundry services to people with AIDS.
The charity received a $10,000 county grant but U-T San Diego says officials are demanding repayment of more than $6,000.
The county says Executive Director Michael Dudley spent it on unapproved expenses, including car repairs and carpeting, instead of on washing machines.
Dudley says he returned nearly $4,000 this week and if authorities want to wring the rest out of him, they'll have to go to court.
