Lumberton car wash owner demands thief to come forward on social media

Crystal Reed says a suspect broke into her lube shop and car wash and took off with hundreds of quarters

LUMBERTON - Crystal Reed spread the word on Facebook following a break-in at her business, 57Xpress in Lumberton.

Reed said the suspect was caught in the act on surveillance video early Friday morning.

“They knew what they was doing and I’m not going to stop until I find out who it is because they had a chance to come forward.” Reed said.

Reed posted a video describing what she believed happened that morning at the lube shop and car wash. The post got more than 200 shares and dozens of comments.

The mother and wife explained the suspect ran off with hundreds of quarters and cash from the mechanical room.

Security video showed the suspect using a bolt cutter to break in.

“I’m real concerned about it. Just how they did it and its incredible how they did it swiftly.” Said Joshua Adkisson who works at 57Xpress.

Reed told 12News this is the first break-in at 57Xpress which she’s owned for 8 years.

“If they are man enough to steal from me, then they should be man enough to come talk to me and tell me they did it.” She said.

Reed believes the thief took about $350 dollars.

Anyone with information is asked to call Lumberton Police Department.
