Law Enforcement agencies along the I-10 corridor, have been investigating a rash of thefts from various types of coin operated machines at local businesses.

Investigators say this vehicle is believed to be in the possession of 41-year-old Edward Carlton Little. He is six feet, three inches tall and weighs 240 pounds.
