BRIEF: Game machine broken into in Myrtle Beach, robber loses cash outside

MYRTLE BEACH, Nov 20, 2012 (The Sun News (Myrtle Beach - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- More than $400 cash was found behind a building after a video game machine was broken into, according to Myrtle Beach Police.

City police responded to Winners Circle Amusement on the 1700 block of U.S. 501 just before 6 a.m. Monday because an alarm was going off. Police found the front glass door had been broken and a video game with a credit card machine had been forced open. The bill receiver from the machine was missing.

When police checked behind the building, they found $424 in loose bills blowing around, the report said. Computer records from the machine show there should have been $1,883 inside.

Surveillance footage showed a man throw a heavy piece of steel through the door at 5:55 a.m. The suspect then used a pry bar on the video game and left the store 30 seconds later, the report said.

The suspect is between 5'7" and 5'9" with an average build. He was wearing blue jeans, black shoes, a green long sleeve shirt, a backwards baseball hat, gloves and a white bandanna across his face.
