Investigators say they have arrested a man who may be responsible for multiple vending machine break-ins in Beaufort County.
Beaufort County deputies said they got a call about the vending machines being broken into at the Piggly Wiggly store on River Road in Washington.
Detectives said as they gathered evidence on that case, similar cases started popping up in Chocowinity and at other places in the city of Washington.
Now, deputies have charged 43-year-old Ronald Hogge of Greenville with three felony counts of breaking into a coin/currency machine.
Hogge was jailed at the Beaufort County Detention Center, and given a $11,000 secured bond.
