(Versailles, Ind.) – A pair of thieves may have a large amount of coins jingling in their pockets after two car wash bill changers were broken into.
The change machines at the Soapy Joe’s Carwash locations in Versailles and Milan were burglarized at about 11:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 12 and 12:26 a.m. on Wednesday, July 13.
Ripley County Sheriff’s Office investigators say two white males driving in a black 2008 or 2009 Pontiac Grand Prix damaged the machines as they obtained the quarters contained in them.
The first suspect is described as being in his mid- to late-20s, approximately six feet tall, and weighing 150 to 170 pounds with darker short hair. The suspect appeared to be well-groomed with light facial hair and wearing long white basketball type shorts, a white t-shirt, white tennis shoes, and a baseball cap.
The second suspect appeared to be in his mid- to late-30s, approximately six feet tall, and weighing 200 to 220 pounds with darker short hair. He was well groomed with a mustache, a large belly, wearing light cargo shorts, and orange t-shirt, and dark tennis shoes.
A reward is being offered for the arrest and conviction of the suspects by the owner of Soapy Joe’s Carwash.
