Thief targets laundromat massage chairs

Authorities are looking for a man suspected of stealing money from the cash boxes attached to massage chairs at a string of Gwinnett County businesses.

The suspect is accused of 10 burglaries, most of them at businesses on South Norcross-Tucker Road in unincorporated Norcross, Gwinnett police said in a press release. The crimes began in December.

The suspect usually enters by force by smashing out glass doors or windows, then he uses a pry tool to force open the cash box attached to each chair, police said. In one case, the suspect entered while the business was open but waited until customers left.

Anyone with information on the suspect is asked to contact Gwinnett police at 770-513-5300 or Crime Stoppers at 404-557-8477.
