Guilty pleas entered in Paradise Car Wash burglary

20 year old Zachary Ensrud of Gering entered guilty pleas Tuesday to charges of burglary and criminal mischief in the July 1st burglary of the Paradise Car Wash in Scottsbluff. Ensrud's pleas were to the original charges and his sentencing is scheduled for July 11th.

Police used distinctive tattoos seen in surveillance camera footage to help arrest Ensrud.

A court document filed by Scottsbluff Police investigator Joe Rohrer says Police received a phone call identifying Ensrud as one of the suspects and also providing information that he had been recently arrested in Laramie.

The court document says the two men entered the building through a hatch on the roof, and damaged a couple doors, but only got away with an estimated $30 in coins before they left.

The other suspect is still on the loose and Police encourage the public to call the Scottsbluff Police Department at (308) 632-7176 or call Scotts Bluff County Crimestoppers at (308) 632-STOP (7867) with any information that could lead to an arrest.
