The Sevier County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in finding two sets of people who allegedly stole change from machines at the Wash House Coin Laundry on Old Newport Highway.

On the first occasion, which occurred in June, security footage shows a man and woman entering the facility and using a key to get access to the coin box in a coin machine, Sheriff Ron Seals said.

On the second, which happened Wednesday, a different couple used string to get money from the machine. Footage also showed the couple leaving in a dark colored Nissan Maxima, according to the sheriff.

Anyone with information on the identity of the suspects is asked to call Lt. Matthew Cubberley at 428-1899 or 774-3934.
