State police seek ID of theft suspect

Indiana State Police are seeking the public's help in identifying a man suspected in committing seven thefts from change-making machines in northeast Indiana this year.

Since early March, a man has visited businesses in Columbia City, Monroe and New Haven posing as a vending machine repairman, state police at Fort Wayne said in a statement.

After gaining entry, the suspect stole money from change-making machines, the statement said. It said the total losses, including damage to the machines, are between $3,000 and $5,000.

The suspect is a man in his late 40s, 5-foot-8 to 5-foot-10 and 220 to 240 pounds, police said. Anyone with information about the man or the thefts is asked to call Trooper Brian Dunkin at 260-432-8661 or 800-552-0976 (Indiana only).
