• Deputies: Couple stole 2,000 quarters, then did laundry


    The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office is searching for a man and woman accused of stealing approximately $500 in quarters from a laundromat's change machine, and then using the money to do laundry at the same laundromat.
    Deputies said the man used a modified key at a Tampa laundromat to open the change machines and steal about $500 in quarters on Sept. 27.
    Authorities said a surveillance camera from a Tampa laundromat shows the two suspects doing their laundry with the same coins.
    The man is described as white, between 25 and 35 years old, with a sleeve tattoo on his left arm and another tattoo on his inner right bicep.

    Two thousand quarters weigh about 25 pounds.
