Investigators are trying to find out who stole money from coin machines at local car washes.

The Pink Hill police chief says surveillance photos show two men stealing money out of the coin machines at Thomas' Car Wash.

The chief says they used a crowbar and a saw to open the metal boxes, causing more than $5,000 worth of damage.

The thieves have allegedly robbed other businesses in Kenansville, Beulaville and Morehead City.

There's a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.
