MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -

Burglars stole nearly $2,000 in quarters from a Murfreesboro car wash on Sunday.

A supervisor at Prestige Car Wash on South Church Street arrived to work Monday to find that someone had broken into the maintenance section of the building, where the change machine was located.

The supervisor said three five-gallon buckets of change were missing, and the change machine was emptied.

All together, the burglars stole between 75 to 100 pounds of quarters, equaling anywhere from $1,500 to $2,000.

Police said evidence suggests the suspects gained entry through the ceiling and exited through the maintenance room's door, which was unlocked and open when the supervisor arrived.

There are no known suspects at this time.  The investigation is ongoing.

Residents with information regarding the crime are urged to call the Rutherford County Crime Stoppers line at 615-893-STOP between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
