Chatham-Kent police look to the public for help in tracking down the culprits behind a couple of odd thefts recently.

That includes the theft of a washing machine. Sometime last night, someone stole a white coin-operated industrial-sized, front-loading washing mashing from the laundry room in the basement of an apartment building on Wallace Street in Wallaceburg.

The value of the machine is about $2,000, police say.

The thieves also damaged a second machine, to the tune of about $500, as they tried to get the coins out of it.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Const. Fraser Curtis at fraserc@chatham-kent.ca or 519-436-6600 ext. 87280. Anonymous callers may call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) and may be eligible for a cash reward.

Sometime between Tuesday night at 7 p.m. and Wednesday night at the same time, someone forced his or her way into a shed on Darrell Line in Chatham Township and stole about $300 worth of wrenches.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Const. Chris Wegrzyn at chriswe@chatham-kent.ca or 519-436-6600 ext. 83064. Anonymous callers may call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) and may be eligible for a cash reward.
