Police Looking to Identify Two Car Wash Control Box Thieves

Corpus Christi police are looking for two men who they say stole a car wash pay station control box from the Stripes store in the 4100 block of Ayers on Friday.

Surveillance footage captured the incident, showing the two suspects pull up to the car wash in a white Ford pickup. The driver gets out of the vehicle and lays a strap beside the control box. They pull through the car wash and leave for a bit before returning to the control box. That's when the passenger gets out of the vehicle, wraps the strap around the control box and attaches it to the trucks rear bumper.

The driver of the truck moves forward, pulling the control box from its base, and the passenger takes the control box and places it in the truck.

The driver of the truck was seen wearing a dark shirt, dark shorts and a wide-brimmed hat. The passenger was wearing a light colored button-up shirt, dark shorts and was also wearing a wide-brimmed hat. The truck is believed to be an older model white Ford F-150 with chrome wheels and possibly a heavy duty after-market rear bumper.

The car wash pay station control box is valued at more than $15,000.

If you can identify either of the two suspects, or if you have any information about this crime that could help police, please call the Corpus Christi Police Department's property crimes division at 361-886-2840, or call Crime Stoppers at 361-888-8477.
