Laundromat burglarized a second time in less than a week

By From page A3 | June 28, 2013

A laundromat in Shingle Springs has been burglarized as second time in less than a week.

The SS Coin Wash on Durock Road in Shingle Springs was burglarized on June 21 at about 1:30 a.m. in a method very similar to its previous burglary, a press release stated.

Three men arrived at the laundromat in a light-colored, foor-door sedan with rear tinted windows, video surveillance showed. Within minutes, the team of burglars opened the coin machine, using the “exact same method” as the previous incident five days prior, the press release stated. One man held open a bag while a second poured the coins and bills in. A third waited in the car.

One man was described as white with short, black hair, wearing blue jeans, a green camouflage hooded jacket, black T-shirt and shoes with white laces and a light-colored baseball cap with a dark bill. He may have had a goatee.

A second man was described as white and very thin, with shoulder-length brown hair possibly with two longer braids in the front and a beard. He wore a green T-shirt, blue jeans and dark shoes.

The third man, the driver, was described as white with short, shaved dark hair. He was wearing dark, baggy jeans, a dark hooded sweatshirt with a design on the back and a white undershirt.

Colfax, Auburn, Roseville and the Stockton area have seen similar burglaries recently.

Anyone with information on the burglaries is urged to contact Detective Netashia Gallagher at 530-642-4720.
