Christopher Mongenel is the man police believe used his 2003 black Chevy Tahoe with chrome wheels to drive up to a car wash money dispensary at the station, open the front door and rear driver's side doors to block himself from public view. Then, he tried to force the dispensary open with a yellow pry bar and bold cutters.
He left the machine without success.
