Police say thieves stole from a Harlan County car wash twice this week.

Cumberland Police say it happened at the car wash on Kingdom Come Drive.

There are no arrests yet.

Police say earlier this week someone stole cash from the vending machine. Officers say on Friday morning, someone broke into the car wash.

"They used heavy equipment to cut into the wall of the car wash, steal the cash box, and they actually cut in through a solid security bar and got in through the door and we don't know what they got away with as of right now," said Sgt. Dale Halcomb.

Anyone with information should call Cumberland Police. You can remain anonymous.
