With his partner keeping lookout, an unidentified man stole a car cover to a Jeep Wagoneer, lifted a few door handles to see which were unlocked, and finally made off with a laundry basket filled with items, police said Friday. 

A crime bulletin from South Pasadena Police showed the man and an unidentified woman in a carport in the 700 block of Prospect Avenue on Wednesday just after 5 p.m., casing the area before swiping the goods. The man stole the basket from inside the building's laundry room.

The couple was driving a dark-colored Ford explorer with a damaged side mirror. For additional photos, please see the bulletin attached to this article.
