Police in San Antonio, Texas are searching for two men who they say ripped a car wash coin machine out of the ground and made off with all of its contents. An off-duty police officer happened to be driving past the business at 5 a.m. when the theft took place, according to KSAT.com.
The officer heard the two men chained the machine to a truck and yanked it out of the ground. He arrived in time to see them loading the machine into a U-Haul. He followed the men after they nearly struck him. Callers told police they saw a U-Haul matching the description, speeding through neighborhoods with a chain dragging behind. Police later found the truck parked off the side of the road.
With the help of a K9 unit, police found the broken cash machine. While they were able to recover the property, they have not arrested the two suspects.
