SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Police investigating a laundromat burglary are looking for a man who paid his cellphone bill in quarters.

A Utah court issued a warrant Tuesday for 19-year-old Dustin David Morgan in the Christmas morning break-in that left the business with about $1,600 in damages and stolen money.

Roosevelt police say in court documents they discovered Morgan paid the bill in change after they posted surveillance photos of him on social media.

Investigators say the man's father also told them Morgan gave him several rolls of quarters and said the police were after him.

Prosecutors filed burglary, theft and criminal mischief charges against Morgan Tuesday.

No attorney was listed for Morgan in court records Wednesday, and his phone number was not publicly listed.
