Three sought in gaming theft

South Boston NewsSouth Boston News / September 02, 2020
The Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office is searching for three male suspects who robbed gaming machines at Simmons Truck Stop in Bracey in the early morning hours on Friday.

According to a statement from the Sheriff’s Office, Deputy James Short was dispatched by the Mecklenburg Emergency Communications Center to Simmons Travel Center around 2:30 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 28 after three black male suspects left the scene with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The men entered the gaming room at the Highway 903 travel center, where several lottery machines are housed. Two of the suspects acted as lookouts while a third, who had a key that fit the money box in each machine, opened the boxes and removed the cash. The three then fled the scene.

The Sheriff’s Office did not say how the one suspect had possession of a key that unlocked the cash boxes.

Anyone with information regarding these suspects is asked to contact the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office at 434-738-6171. If you wish to remain anonymous, you can call the Mecklenburg Crime Solvers at 877-676-8477. Those offering credible tips leading to the suspects’ arrests could receive a $1,000 reward.
