by Perry Miller

Brookings police are investigating the theft of coins from more than a dozen
washing machines in four apartment buildings.

Lt. Derrick Powers says the incidents likely happened sometime in the
past few days at four apartment buildings on the 1700, 1800 and 1900
blocks of 8th St. 

A total of 13 washing machines were broken into and the coins were stolen.
It's not known how much cash was taken but the damage to the machines is
over one-thousand dollars.

Anyone with information on the thefts is asked to contact the Brookings
