Suffolk County Crime Stoppers has joined with Riverhead and Southampton Town Police in asking the public for help in identifying the perps in two unrelated theft cases.
Riverhead cops say a man and woman used rocks to smash the glass of coin machines at Laundry Palace on Harrison Avenue and made off with fistfuls of cash and gift cards on December 13, 2017.
The Bonnie and Clyde duo wore dark-colored clothing and had hooded jackets pulled up over their heads to conceal their identities.
Despite their getups, investigators were able to pull still images from surveillance video that captured their entrance into the business.
The images were released last week in hopes they would jog the public’s memory and help develop some leads.
In the second case, which comes out of Southampton town, police say two ATVs worth about $17,000 were nicked from the yard of a home in Hampton Bays. The ATVs were taken sometime between the evening of April 11 and the early morning hours of April 12. It is not clear how the ATVs were stolen from the yard.
Both ATVs are distinctive in their coloring. The first one is a 2016 Black and Yellow Yamaha 700 with the VIN number of 5Y4AM86Y4GA104880, and the second is a 2013 Blue and White Yamaha 450 with red rims in the rear and a VIN number of JY4AJ37Y6DC012459.
Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $5000 for information leading to an arrest in either case. Anyone with information about the thefts can contact Crime Stoppers to submit an anonymous tip by calling 1-800-220-TIPS, texting SCPD and your message to CRIMES, or via email at www.tipsubmit.com. All calls, text messages, and emails will remain confidential.
