Last updated 12/22/2020 at 3:18pm

On Dec. 15 just after 7 a.m., a suspect burglarized a coin laundry business in the 300 block of Main Street in Security.

He walked into the business, opened the breaker panel to turn off all breakers, then proceeded to the coin machine. He pulled a cordless saw out of his jacket and began cutting holes into the drywall next to the coin machine. The area of the wall the suspect cut allowed access to the back of the coin machine where the money was stored. The suspect immediately left the laundromat when another male entered the store and confronted him.

The suspect, pictured at right, is described as a white male in his 50s-60s, with gray hair, wearing an orange and black face mask, black jacket, blue jeans, dark-colored work boots and gray and black gloves.

The suspect vehicle, pictured below, is described as a silver over dark gray or black pickup truck, with a light-colored box in the bed of the truck.

"Any information may prove valuable in solving the case," a Sheriff's Office spokesperson said.

If you recognize the suspect or vehicle or have other information, call the Sheriff's Office Patrol Tip Line at 719-520-7777 and reference case #20-14334.
