Authorities in Columbia and Richmond counties are looking for this man in connection with recent thefts from vending machines at self-serve businesses.

The owner of the Dollar Wash at 3515 Old Petersburg Road in Martinez said that just before midnight May 28 someone broke into a vending machine outside the car wash.

Video surveillance footage showed two men arriving in a red and white Ford truck. The driver, a white man wearing blue jeans and a multi-colored shirt, and the passenger, a black man in blue shorts and a white shirt, got out.

The driver tampered with a vending machine until it opened. He threw several items into the truck and drove away, according to a Columbia County Sheriff’s Office incident report.

The pair are suspected in a similar theft May 29 at the Washing Well Coin Laundry at 4286 Windsor Spring Road in Augusta.

Anyone with information about the men’s identities or whereabouts should call the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office at (706) 541-2800.

Who would want to risk jail time for the amount of money you would steal from a vending machine? Wait, I'll answer my own question, a low life lazy thief who has no regard for an honest days work.
