The Gonzales Police Department is requesting the public’s assistance with identifying two men suspected of breaking into vending machines at a local hotel.    On July 1, 2014, the two unknown white males entered a local hotel and proceeded to several vending machines on different floors.  The male pictured without a hat was hiding a pry bar under his shirt and is the person who damaged and broke into the machines while the male with the yellow shirt acted as a lookout.  Just prior to this incident, the vending machines had just been emptied and the suspects only got away with four quarters.  Despite the trivial amount gained by the suspects, they caused over $700 worth of damage.

If anyone recognizes the suspects, please contact Crime Stoppers or the Gonzales Police Department at 225-647-9572.
