GLENDALE — A 35-year-old Los Angeles man was arrested this week after police saw him trying to break into laundry card and coin machines with a pry bar, according to police reports. A witness told police that she went for an early workout in her apartment gym on the 1100 block of North Columbus Avenue where she saw the alleged burglar, Mark Jones, hitting the coin machine with a pry bar, according to reports. Jones saw her and told him that he was servicing the machine. But when she noticed that the laundry card machine was badly damaged, she suspected Jones was trying to break in to the machines, so she remained inside the gym. She continued working out and tried to come up with ideas to escape without raising any suspicions.
