(RICHMOND, Va.) -- Richmond Police detectives need the public's help to identify the individuals in the photos who are seen on video tampering with a gaming machine recently. 

On Tuesday, November 5, the suspects are seen in a gaming room at Pop's Bar & Grille, 210 Giant Drive, feeding cash into the machine and using an implement connected to the bill to pull it back out. In this larceny, known as 'fishing', the machine registers the bill as a credit and the suspects could then play or cash out the credits. Several thousands of dollars were reported stolen.

Detectives ask anyone who observes suspicious activity at gaming machines to alert management.

Detectives ask anyone with information about the identity of these individuals to call Third Precinct Detective O. Sovine at (804) 646-1950 or Crime Stoppers at 780-1000.
