He’s taking these automobile washes to the cleaners.

A artful bandit has stolen thousands of dollars on an interstate robbery spree targeting self-serve car washes.

His weapon of choice? A laminated $20 invoice on a string.

The thief was once caught on surveillance in Mooresville, Ind., on Aug. 4, 2017, and Jan. 26, in keeping with the Indianapolis Superstar.

“We’ve simplest actually had dealings with him, however he’s a large pain,” Mooresville Police Department Detective Donald Kays tells the Indy Big Name.

The Person’s modus operandi is discreet: He again and again feeds his rigged $20 invoice into the gadget, presses the refund button and collects the change.

The vehicular looter — who has been noticed riding two other trucks — then fishes the bill out of the gadget with the string-like piece of plastic.

“The suspect had placed plastic over the invoice keeping tooth of the gadget from shredding it while pulled again out,” the Boardman Township, Ohio, police tell the Indy Superstar. they are investigating a July 10 incident while the thief made off with $SEVEN-HUNDRED from Splash N Shine in their space.

Investigators are not sure how many robberies have taken place, however the bandit has hit automotive washes in no less than two different Indiana towns and others in Ohio, Big Apple and Illinois.

Kays said the suspect — who goals car washes near major highways — conceals his registration code and wipes away his fingerprints.

Then Again, he hasn’t stricken to obscure his face, so investigators are hoping the general public can help find the thief and his slippery bill.
