CUMMING, Ga. — A woman watched a man open a vending machine and steal money, according to a Cumming Police incident report.

At about 5 p.m. April 1, the owner of a Laundromat, 315 West Maple Street, told officers three people came in and stole money from the machine.

He said he did not know how much was taken, and there was no video surveillance watching the property.

A regular customer said she saw the incident. She said a man and two women walked into the busy Laundromat and waited until people started leaving.

Then, they went to the vending machine and the man opened the machine with a key.

The women were watching the windows and looking outside.

The witness said it looked as if the man got the impression he was being watched and he said he was removing bowling alley coins from the machine.

The suspects took off in an older red Jeep Cherokee.
