2015-01-19 · By Editor
The Long Beach Police Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect wanted in connection with laundry room burglaries where the suspect removed coins from laundry machine coin boxes. Detectives believe, based on similar circumstances, that the suspect was involved in multiple burglaries from November 2013 to January 2015.
In the most recent incident, which occurred on January 3, 2015, around 9:00 a.m. in the 300 block of Gladys Avenue, a male suspect entered a multi-family residential laundry room and forced entry into a coin box in an attempt to remove the cash. In this instance, the box was empty, so the suspect left empty handed.
The suspect seen on surveillance video is described as: male, Hispanic, 30-40 years old, approximately 5’7” – 5’10”, 190-210 lbs, with short black hair, brown eyes, a mustache, and a long triangular shaped nose.
