Laundry loot

A gun-toting thug raided the Choo Choo Laundry on E. 102nd Street on Oct. 26 during a daring late-night robbery.

Workers at the 24-hour laundromat, which is between Farragut and Glenwood roads, said the thief entered at 12:20 am and pulled a gun on a worker, demanding that he empty the register.

The thief ran off with $200, said police. No injuries were reported.

This was the second time the laundromat had been robbed in a month, police said.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to come forward.
