Just before 6 p.m. on Christmas Day, 2017, a clerk at the Pilot Travel Center on Ruffin Mill Road saw two men playing on the gambling machines in the back corner of the store. The clerk then saw the two men running from the store, so he went to check on the machines. He discovered the machines had been pried open and the coins inside stolen.
Both suspects were white males. One had short black hair and the other had short blond hair.
