The Bay County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the burglary of a vending machine.
Deputies responded to Custom Tattoo Designs on July 15 and found that a soft drink machine had been tampered with and the bill and change slots removed.
Video of the incident was captured by security cameras. The video revealed that approximately 11:40 p.m. a dark colored Ford or GMC King Cab truck pulled into the parking lot. A white male with blonde or light colored hair in a ponytail and wearing a light colored t-shirt, blue jeans shorts, black sneakers and white socks, approached the front of Highway 231 Custom Tattoo Designs where the vending machine was kept. Another white male wearing a light colored t-shirt and shorts eventually got out of the truck and helped the first suspect break into the machine.
Anyone with information about this incident and these suspects is asked to contact the Bay County Sheriff’s Office at 747-4700 or Crime Stoppers at 785-TIPS.
