Fed-up father tries to tackle crime at carwash

OKLAHOMA CITY — One man decided to stake out the family carwash to catch criminals in action.

OKLAHOMA CITY — According to www.koco.com, the family who owns a carwash in northwest Oklahoma City said that there are break-in attempts on its cashboxes nearly every night.

Recently, Chuck Dahlgrem, father of the wife in the husband-and-wife team that owns the carwash, finally got fed up and decided to do something about it, the article continued.

“If we get to the point where we can’t protect what’s ours, or can’t take a stand, what’s the purpose?” Chuck Dahlgrem said. “I’m just sick and tired of people taking money from them.”

Lately, Dahlgrem has woken up in the middle of the night every day to go to the carwash, hoping to catch thieves, the article added.

Dahlgrem said that burglars have tried every method of theft, from prying open coin boxes to using sledgehammers to break into the office, the article noted.

“They are totaling this carwash,” Dahlgrem said.

On Jan. 13th, Dahlgrem watched two suspects attempt to take coins from the vacuums, the article stated; he was on the phone with the police as the criminals started to drive off.

Police caught the two suspects, and Dahlgrem said that he’s thankful the police responded so quickly, the article noted.

“There is no way the police can catch all these guys,” he said. “This guy was only here for five minutes, and then they were gone.”
