Kelseyville car wash hit by burglars

KELSEYVILLE – The holiday weekend saw turkeys of a different kind causing problems for businessman and supervisor, Rob Brown.


Brown reported that a car wash he owns on North Main Street in Kelseyville was burglarized sometime between 5:30 p.m. Friday and 11:30 a.m. Saturday.


The burglars did about $10,000 in damage to get at $500 in coins in the car wash coin machine, said Brown.


In addition, Brown said the burglars stole tools and other random items such as garbage bags.


A bemused Brown noted that among the rest of the items stolen were numerous packets of Armor All and cases of car air fresheners, which should make the culprits pretty easy to spot.


In the 10 years he's operated the car wash it's been hit by hoodlums before, he said. “We've been burglarized before but nothing to this extent.”


Because of the damage, Brown has had to shut down the car wash while repairs are made, which has resulted in lost business.


Brown said he's offering a $500 reward for information leading to an arrest of the burglars. He said anonymous tips are welcome, with no questions asked.


Anyone with information is asked to contact Det. Brian Martin of the Lake County Sheriff's Office, who is handling the case, at 262-4200.
