Men Who Stole $800 in Quarters from Car Wash Caught on Tape



Police are hoping that newly released video surveillance footage will help catch the two men who stole $800 worth of quarters from the Wash Wizzard car wash in North Ridgeville on June 11.

The video clearly shows the men and several distinguishing features, including their car and tattoos.

"These gentleman are very brazen, they're either unaware that they are under surveillance by video camera at this car wash, or they simply don't care," North Ridgeville Detective Pat West told 19 Action News.

To steal the money, the two bandits developed a system to efficiently and effectively extract the coins.

A five dollar bill with a string attached was slipped into the automated machine. Once the change was dispensed, the bill was retracted and the quarters collected.

In about 10 minutes, the two machines at Wash Wizzard had been cleaned out and the men left with their loot of $800.

Police believe a third suspect was operating their getaway car.

Anyone with more information on the theft is asked to contact North Ridgeville police at (440) 327-2191.
