The woman wrote a message on the machine’s screen, then shoved a tampon into where money should be inserted. She also wrote a large “X” on a light inside the wash, noted the article.

After leaving the location, she was seen on footage at a second Time-It location, which was closed. She wrote another message on a screen there as well, stated the article.
