A North Vernon man is being accused of robbing a change machine at a laundromat.

North Vernon police report that they were called to an alarm at a laundry on North State Street at just before 4 this morning. They saw a man leaving the building who then allegedly ran away from officers. 41-year-old Micah Manning was found hiding under a pickup truck. Burglary tools were found in the laundry with the damaged change machine. The laundry owner estimated that between $30 and $50 had been taken from the machine and some of that change was allegedly found on Manning by police.

Manning was arrested on preliminary charges of burglary, theft, resisting law enforcement, possession of paraphernalia, criminal mischief, disorderly conduct and also on two outstanding warrants for failing to appear in court.
