Lawrence police this morning released photographs of two people wanted in connection with criminal damage done earlier this week at a Lawrence laundry.

Police Officer Vickie Moore said the man and the woman are believed to be responsible for about $40 of damage done June 20 at the Plaza East Laundry Center, 1910 Haskell.

Moore, coordinator for Crime Stoppers of Lawrence and Douglas County, said the damage is believed to have been done between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m.

She said police believe the couple spent about 30 minutes doing laundry before the man pried open a storeroom door, breaking the lock on the door. Moore said the woman appeared to be serving as a look-out as the man pried open the door.

The couple's actions were captured on film by a security camera.

Both suspects are believed to be in their late 20s. The man was described as being about 6-foot-2, 195 pounds, with shoulder-length brown hair and a beard. He had tattoos on his right bicep and right leg. He was wearing cutoff blue jeans and tennis shoes.

The woman was about 5 foot-6, 120 pounds, with long blond or light brown hair. She had a tattoo on the back of her right shoulder.

Moore asked that anyone with information about the suspects or the incident contact Crime Stoppers at 843-TIPS (8477).

Crime Stoppers pays cash rewards of up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of people committing crimes in Lawrence and Douglas County. Calls to Crime Stoppers can be on an anonymous basis.
