Squeaky Clean Laundry Mat Video Still

Gerald police are asking for help identifying the suspect in this surveillance photo who vandalized the Squeaky Clean Laundromat early Monday, Jan. 20.

The suspect also is sought in connection to a burglary at the Rosebud General Store.

Anyone with information about either crime is asked to contact Gerald police at 573-764-3424, or the Gasconade County Sheriff’s office toll free tip Line at 1-877-486-4036.

Authorities said police responded to the business on West Fourth Street, Gerald, early Jan. 20.

A video time stamped at 12:44 a.m. shows the suspect dressed in black clothing and a black ski mask entering the laundromat and breaking the front glass of a vending machine. The suspect then took candy and chips valued at $10. 

The suspect in the laundromat appears to be same person responsible for the Rosebud burglary earlier that morning, according to Capt. Chuck Howard of the Gasconade County Sheriff’s office.
