VIDEO: Thief busts through YMCA ceiling, steals fake cash



INDIO (KRON) —¬†Police in Indio are on the lookout for someone who broke into a YMCA through the ceiling in order to steal cash from a register.

Trouble is that neither the cash nor the register was real.

The whole this was caught on security camera.

A man kicked through the ceiling of the YMCA Child Development Center. He dropped to the floor, then broke into a cash register, stealing all the money inside before making a daring escape out the door.

The cash register was actually a children’s toy filled with play money.

The Indio Police Department believes this might not be the first time this suspect has broken in through a ceiling.

“Thieves tend to have specific MOs with stuff that they follow and stuff that they are comfortable with, and they don’t get caught doing it once, and they figure, ‘Hey, it’s a tried and true method,’ and then they stick to it,” Sgt. Dan Marshall said.

Police are still searching for the suspect.
