After two break-ins in two weeks, Miracle Car Wash owner Tony Bruno is frustrated.

"It's my time, its frustrating to come here and have to deal with it more than anything," said Bruno.

It's an inconvenience for this busy owner.

Bruno is not a first time burglary victim. He was hit a few years ago and now 22 cameras surround his business.

"He goes right for the machine right there you can tell. So they are not really there to do much, except get into the machine," said Bruno.

The crook was after the coin meck in the vending machine. It holds all the change. Bruno said the crook made off with 50 dollars worth of coins each hit.

After the first break-in, Bruno added an extra lock. But the guy just pryed it off.

Fortunately on this break-in, the guy also buys a wash and in the process he shows his face directly to the camera.

Even though during each break-in he arrives in different cars. Police believe it's the same guy.

For Bruno, the whole thing is a big inconvenience. Each time the machine has to get repaired and thirsty customers aren't pleased.

"Seventy-five cents for a soda, two dollars for a monster energy, and it's always ice cold. And when it's not functioning they are not happy," said Bruno.
