Exhausted couple shut down laundry after 12 robberies

Exhausted couple shut down laundry after 12 robberies

A California couple, who owns several laundromats, can no longer see their business being robbed in the greater San Francisco area.

In the past six months, laundry rooms have been divided into 12 times, Derek Toms noted in a daily interview Inside Edition.

The ordeal for him and his family began in January, when a truck crashed into the front of their laundry room only to be able to steal money from an ATM at the entrance.

Despite CCTV evidence presented to the police, he says nothing positive has happened.

“Previously, this kind of crime happened around 2 am. In my case, the thieves did it at 7 am. In one week, they stole up to $5,000 from me and caused $11,000 in damages to the ATM” .

Several similar crimes occurred in the weeks following the first incident.

The American businessman says the crime that angered him most was when they tried to steal his truck parked outside his house.

He says that thanks to his dog the thieves escaped.

Finally, this California family decided to pack up and settle down thousands of miles away in Alabama.

The couple had to close all of their branches before moving in, which was difficult.

“It was a very difficult decision, but it was the right choice,” says Skyler, Derek’s wife.

The family plans to open new laundries in Alabama, while they wait to sell their old buildings in California.
