COLONIAL HEIGHTS, VA (WWBT) - Authorities are searching for two men who they say stole coins from gambling machines on Christmas Day at the Pilot Travel Center on Ruffin Mill Road.

Just before 6 p.m., a clerk saw the two men playing on the machines in the back corner of the store.

"The clerk then saw the two men running from the store, so he went to check on the machines," said Chesterfield County/Colonial Heights Crime Solvers. "He discovered the machines had been pried open and the coins inside stolen."
