MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) -- Never leave your clothes unattended at the the laundromat. A Mobile woman learned that lesson the hard way Saturday night at a laundromat off Airport Boulevard.

The victim says she walked away for 10 minutes around 9:30 p.m., when a lady seen in surveillance video helped herself to two loads of clothes and towels and bath mats.

After posting the video and images on social media -- the victim says she learned the suspect had been arrested on unrelated charges that same night about an hour and a half after taking the laundry.

Still no word on where her laundry is as Mobile Police continue to investigate if the suspect behind bars and the laundry bandit are in fact one and the same.

Meanwhile, if you have video of someone "Caught In The Act" -- email it to us at We may show it in our newscast.
