Police in Danville asking public to help identify laundromat theft suspect

UPDATE (June 21, 2019): Police made an arrest in this case.

DANVILLE, Ind. — Danville police are asking for help in identifying a man wanted for robbing a laundromat on Saturday, June 15.

In the early hours of Saturday morning, a man entered the Danville Super Clean Coin Laundry and “punched” the locks of two currency exchange machines using a tool, getting away with approximately $2500 in quarters and cash.

The suspect arrived earlier as a passenger in a newer model, blue, Chevrolet passenger car. Police believe a man and woman were waiting in the getaway car during the theft.

The suspect seen on surveillance footage was wearing a red hooded sweat shirt, with what appears to be “Triple T Farms” written on the back, with a horse logo in a center circle.

The man is described as having a slim build, in his early to mid-thirties, approximately six feet tall, 185lbs, with a shaved head, and stubble facial hair. He appeared to be with a male and female in the suspect vehicle.

The suspect and vehicle match the same descriptions of a similar theft from a Bainbridge, Indiana laundromat on April 29, 2019.

“The exact same thing, exact same vehicle, the suspect looks very similar if not the exact same. They went in with the same tool. They were in and out just like they were in our theft,” said Nate Lien, with the Danville Police Department.

Anyone with information about this suspect is asked to contact Danville police at the anonymous tip line at (317) 745-3001, or contact Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana.
