The change machines have been stolen again from the Water World car wash in the 1600 block of West Third Street, according to the Bloomington Police Department. Money worth less than the value of the machines was taken.

Police responded to the business around noon Monday when the owner reported the theft. Police reviewed surveillance video showing a thin white male wearing prescription glasses dressed in camo with his face mostly covered prying two machines off a wall around 2:30 a.m. Friday.

The owner said each machine is worth about 3,000 dollars. The business is working on trying to secure the machines but hadn’t finished doing so before getting hit a third time by thieves.

Both machines were found dumped in the woods north of the business, but cash worth much less than the value of the machines was taken.

Police have yet to apprehend any suspects in the thefts.
