Clark County deputies began their investigation when they responded to a laundromat in New Carlisle in reference to a theft.

“Upon arrival, the business owner advised he was reviewing his security camera from the weekend and observed a male using a metal wire to remove quarters from the coin machine inside the business,” the report says.

The deputy said he could not identify the man at the time, but did recognize a person with him.
