Two men have been caught stealing a car wash pay machine in Adelaide by ramming it with a car.The theft happened about 7.30am on Wednesday, November 25, when two men drove into a service station on North East Road at Windsor Gardens and tried to remove the machine using a drill.Their first attempt was unsuccessful so they used a white Peugeot 206 sedan with fake number plates and rammed the machine until it became dislodged, South Australia police said.

They then placed the pay machine into the car and drove off.A few hours later the empty pay machine was found on Scott Street at Glynde.


The suspects are described as being of Caucasian appearance.

One man had a slim build with long scruffy hair, and he was wearing a cap with sunglasses, a surgical mask, jeans, t-shirt and thongs.

The second man is described as having a large build, aged in his late 30s, with a bald head.He was wearing a black top, black shorts and sunglasses on the back of his neck.Anyone who recognises the suspects are asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or online at
