Dickinson Police see increase in laundry room thefts

The Dickinson Police Department is asking for public assistance with what it calls a “rash of thefts” from washers and dryers in apartment buildings throughout the city.

Officers are seeing an increase in reports of missing coin boxes from washer and dryer units, and are encouraging apartment-dwellers to keep an eye out around machines.

Det. Terry Oestreich said the coin boxes often contain between $20 to $100 in quarters, but can cost as much as $800 to replace.

“It’s quite costly,” he said.

If anyone has information concerning the thefts or notes anything suspicious, they should contact the Dickinson Police Department at 701-456-7759.
