A man and a woman are under arrest for a string of crimes across the west side of Monroe County.

The Monroe County Sheriff's Office says James Page of Chili and Mary Douglas of Gates were arrested for a pair of breakins at the Top Notch Car Wash on Lake Road in Hamlin. In both cases, the cash box holding the quarters was stolen out of an automated vacuum cleaner machine. Other crimes included theft of a cash box from a restaurant and siphoning gasoline from trucks at a business in Gates. They and the short-bed black pickup truck they were driving were caught on numerous surveillance cameras.

Both have been charged with multiple counts of criminal mischief and petit larceny. They'll appear in Hamlin Court on August 20th.

Deputies and Gates Police continue to work the case and may link the pair to other crimes.
