ROSEVILLE, CA – The Bonnie and Clyde of Laundromats and car washes were arrested last week for a string of coin-operated machine thefts in Roseville and throughout the region.
According to the Roseville Police Department, detectives arrested Cynthia J. Patrias and Robert J. Miller, both 49 of Turlock, on suspicion of grand theft, conspiracy and other related charges.
There are two other suspects that are pending charges.
Between June 14 and 21 in the early morning hours, the couple went into at least four businesses and drilled the locks to the coin boxes. The thefts occurred at a Laundromat on Folsom Road and coin-operated car washes on Eureka Road, Taylor Road and Pleasant Grove Boulevard.
Roseville detectives were able to identify a group of thieves that were linked to the thefts in Roseville after interviewing witnesses, reviewing video surveillance and gathering information from other area law enforcement agencies. There were at least 14 similar thefts between February and June in the counties of Placer, Sacramento, El Dorado, Yuba and San Joaquin.
The total loss to the victims, including repair costs, is in excess of $21,000.
