Theft and vandalism at North Shore Car Wash

Last Friday, Peter Schliep, the owner of the North Shore Car Wash and Laundromat was met with an unpleasant surprise when he opened the car wash for business. Overnight on September 21, someone had pried open a coin box, taking all of the coins and damaging the box beyond repair.
Schliep said only one of the two car wash bays was damaged, however, it is a bad time to have a bay down, as there are a lot of grouse hunters and leaf lookers washing cars this time of year.
The North Shore Car Wash also provides free boat washes under the Minnesota Aquatic Invasive Species Prevention Program.
Schliep was able to make temporary repairs and both bays are now back in service.
Schliep tells WTIP that he has cameras at the car wash and laundromat and Cook County Law Enforcement said the suspects have been identified. The case is currently under investigation.
