NORCROSS, Ga. — Police are searching for a man who they say is stealing money from mechanical massage chairs at several businesses in Atlanta’s suburbs.

Gwinnett County police say the suspect is accused of 10 burglaries, mostly at businesses on South Norcross-Tucker Road in unincorporated Norcross. Police say the crimes began in December.

Police said the man usually smashes glass doors or windows and then he uses a pry tool to force open the cash box attached to each massage chair. In one case, the suspect entered while the business was open but waited until customers left.

Do ya think

Maybe if these business started taking the money out of the chairs when they close, his profits would dry up?
