WANTED: Vending Thieves On Crystal Coast

Who are these men? Police in one Eastern Carolina town hope you know who they are and give police a call.

Morehead City police say the duo are responsible for breaking into vending machines at the Holiday Inn Express as well as other motels in Atlantic Beach and Pine Knoll Shores.

Police say the man in the black shirt would always be the one breaking into the machines, while his friend in the white shirt would be the lookout.

Surveillance video shows the man in the white shirt on the cell phone while the other man pried open the machines. Police believe on the other end of that cell phone was a third person who stayed in a vehicle, possible a white woman.

    Those two punks look health enough to get a job. Wonder how much those cool shades cost them or did they steal them also? Feel sorry for the family.

    Neo, if they will do this then they are thugs. If you will do one crime, you will do another. They need to be in jail so they can get what they need instead of stealing.
