Police seeking two suspects after laundromat break-in

KILGORE, TX (KLTV) -

The Kilgore Police are searching for a man and woman after a break-in at a Gregg County laundromat.

According to Kilgore Police, the suspects pulled up to Gregg Laundry in a small, white four-door Ford car at around 4:20 p.m. on December 14. The female suspect walked into business, looked at the coin-operated machines and then left. The male then entered, broke into two of the machines and stole the money out of them.

"They drove up to the business knowing they were going in and break into the machines. the female goes in first, checks it out, makes sure nobody's in there," says Kilgore police detective Kay Lynn Newbill.

Acting as a lookout , the female suspect may have targeted the machines that would hold the most money.

Coming back with bolt cutters, the man snaps through a lock and opens a novelty claw machine. Police believe the pair are pro's.

"He's gloved up, got gloves on, and appears to be cool, calm and collected not nervous about what he's doing. They were in the store a total of approximately 7 - 8 minutes," Newbil says.

The pair got away with around 2-hundred dollars worth of coins. Investigators believe the arrest of the pair could resolve other unsolved burglaries.

"If they're doing it this quick , they're doing it other places," says Newbill.

If you have any information on these suspects, please contact Detective Kay Lynn Newbill at (903) 983-1559 ext. 233 or you can call Gregg County CrimeStoppers at (903) 236-STOP.
