SUMMERVILLE, S.C. -- Police say more than a dozen coin-operated clothes dryers have been stolen from apartment complexes in southeastern South Carolina in recent weeks.

Police say the machines are valued between $400 and $1,500 each. Summerville Police Capt. Jon Rogers says investigators think the thieves are after the money in the coin-operated machines.

Officers say the thieves hit one apartment complex two days in a row, taking four dryers and a washing machine. Five dryers were taken from another complex.

The thefts started last month. No arrests have been made.
