MOBILE, AL (WALA) -

This is a first for FOX10 News Fugitive Files.  I've profiled more than 1 suspect at a time, but this is the first time I've profiled a married couple.

Mobile Police say Mark and Kristie Jones are from Gulfport, Mississippi.  Police say the Jones' have come to Mobile a number of times to break into coin-operated vacuum/air compression machines at car washes and suck up all the money.

"They go to the machines and he uses a "crafted key" and that's how he gets the money out.  He's stolen over $700, and this has happened in the 2300 block of St. Stephens Road as well as the 1700 block of St. Stephens Road," said Mobile Police spokesperson Charlette Solis.

Mark Jones  is 37 years old, 5 foot 8 inches tall and weighs 160 pounds.

Kristie Jones is 39 years old, 5 foot 1 inches tall and weighs 160 pounds. They've been seen in a1999 Ford Ranger pickup truck.

If you know where to find either one, or both of them, call the FOX10 News Fugitive Files/Crimestoppers Hotline at 251-208-7000.

Mobile Police say Mark Jones has been arrested before, for possession of burglar tools in Jackson County, Mississippi.  Now, the couple is wanted in Mobile.
