Man wanted for breaking into Redbox machine in Myrtle Beach

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - One man is wanted for breaking into a Redbox machine at a convenience store on Socastee Boulevard early Saturday morning.

Video surveillance shows the Redbox machine intact at 3:45 a.m. At the same time, surveillance shows headlights shine in the parking lot. The headlights make it apparent the individual driving stopped and turned the vehicle so the headlights ended up pointing at the building, according to the police report.

A white male can be seen on camera with a crow bar in his left hand and a possible machete type tool in his right hand, according to the police report. The suspect then swung the machete type tool, thus knocking the camera off the wall.

Police discovered that the Redbox machine had a broken screen and obvious pry marks. All DVDs and video games were taken from the machine.

The suspect is described as a white male, 5`09"- 5`11" tall and weighing between 195 – 235 pounds. The suspect was wearing light colored clothing, including shorts, a long sleeve shirt and a hat, according to the police report.

If you have any information about the incident, please contact the Myrtle Beach Police Department by calling (843) 918-1300.
