YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A man police said broke into a Mahoning Avenue laundromat was indicted by a Mahoning County grand jury on tampering with coin machines, vandalism and theft charges.
Nicholas Kovacs, 33, was arrested by U.S. Marshals and Boardman police in July. Police said tips from the public helped them identify Kovacs, after the suspect’s photo was shown by local television stations.
They said Kovacs was captured on surveillance video stealing money and damaging machines at the Mahoning Laundromat One on July 17. The suspect used a long metal instrument to pry open a coin box, making off with $400 in quarters and causing $1,000 in damage.
