Vending Machine Burglaries

Two Jacksonville residents are behind bars Sunday after the Panama City Beach Police Department arrested them on several counts of burglary.

34-year-old Richard Robert Willet and 23-year-old Samantha Jo Cobb are facing charges of burglary to a structure, burglary to a vending machine, and possession of burglary tools.

Early Sunday morning patrol officers responded to a call at the Moondrifter Condominiums in reference to a burglary.

Officers found the suspects leaving the scene after attempting to force their way into vending machines.

After a search of their car, officers found a large amount of $1 bills and U.S. coins.

Officers also found burglar tools.

Both are in the Bay County Jail, and the investigation is still on-going.
