Police look for 2 men who allegedly stole thousands in quarters from change machine

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Myrtle Beach police ask asking the public's help in identifying two suspects who allegedly stole thousands of dollars in quarters from a change ending machine at Thorny's Restaurant on February 8.

The man who services the machine arrived on February 15, and noticed that about $2,100 in quarters was missing, and only about $300 in cash was in the machine. That's when the restaurant manager called police, and they reviewed the surveillance footage.

According to the police report, two men can be seen on the restaurant's footage on February 8 spending a lot of time at the machine, which dispenses quarters in exchange for paper money. One man is seen blocking view of the other while he appears to get coins from the machine. The men leave the room and come back several times between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m., and at one point, move a gumball machine to obstruct the view of the change machine.

One man is described in the police report as a white man, about 5-foot-11-inches to 6-feet tall, 260 to 280 pounds in weight, and about 35 to 50 years old. He was seen wearing a baseball cap, long-sleeve khaki shirt, khaki pants, and was clean shaven. The other suspect was described as a white man, about 5-foot-9-inches to 5-foot-10-inches tall, 250 to 270 pounds in weight, and also about 35 to 50 years old. He had short hair, a full beard, and was wearing a hooded sweat shirt, black pants, and white sneakers.

Anyone with any information on the identity of these men is asked to contact Detective Adams with the Myrtle Beach Police Department at 843-918-1904 and reference incident number 14-002619.
