Thieves target Atascadero car wash
January 8, 2015
A pair of thieves stole a generator from an Atascadero car wash and evaded capture, but they did not manage to sidestep the business’s surveillance camera.
On Sunday night, the thieves showed up to El Camino Car Wash, and one of them snatched a Honda 6500 generator, which is value at about $6,000. The other suspect drove an older model Chevrolet or GMC single cab pickup onto the car wash lot, where they both loaded the generator into the truck, surveillance footage shows.
The video does not provide clear depictions of the thieves’ appearances.
Atascadero police have not identified the suspects and are still searching for them. Police request that anyone with information or questions about the incident contact the department at 461-5051.
