Suspects sought in theft from Shingle Springs coin laundry

SS Coin Wash NO. 1  06-16-13.PNGThe El Dorado County Sheriff's Office is the asking public's help in identifying two men suspected for stealing approximately $2,000 from a Shingle spring coin-operated laundry.

About 4:30 a.m. Sunday, two men entered the SS Coin Wash on Durock Road and started wandering around the business, according to a Sheriff's Office news release. Both went in and out of the business several times over the course of five hours. Officials said the men appeared to have laundered items while they were there.

The men arrived at the business in what appeared to be a 14-foot U-Haul moving truck with decals that read "U can do it" and a green price tag with "$19.95" on the side.

About 8:45 a.m., one of the suspects reportedly drilled into the coin machine while the other backed the U-Haul truck up next to the door of the business. Sheriff's officials said the two men stole approximately $2,000 in quarters and bills.

SS Coin Wash No. 2  06-16-1302.PNGOne of the men was described as white, 20 to 35 years old, 6 feet tall and weighing about 185 pounds. He had brown collar-length hair, and was wearing jeans and a dark green hooded sweatshirt. He also was wearing black skater-type shoes with white laces and a dark-colored baseball cap with two white letters on the front, possibly "NY."

The second man was described as white, about 20 to 35 years old, 5 feet, 10 inches tall, weighing about 200 pounds with brown buzz-cut hair. He was wearing dark-colored pants and sweatshirt, and may have had a tattoo with writing across the back of his neck.

Sheriff's officials said surveillance cameras captured photos (above) of the suspects inside and outside the business.

Anyone who recognizes the men or has information regarding the incident is asked to call Detective Netashia Gallagher at (530) 642-4720.
