New York trio arrested for allegedly stealing nearly $6,000 from skills machines in State College
Three New Yorkers are facing felony charges for allegedly stealing $5,993 from skills machines in State College.
Jose Reynoso, 34, Tiffany Cabrera, 26, and Warner Alvarez-Almanzar, 30, were arrested on Oct. 26 after police caught them attempting to break into a skills machine at a Smokers Square on South Atherton Street.
The charges, however, are based on an earlier alleged theft on Oct. 18 from a Smokers Square on East College Avenue.
It was there that Reynoso was caught on surveillance removing money from cash boxes under four skills machines.
Upon their arrest, police discovered lock picks and keys commonly used for unlocking such machines on Reynoso.
Alvarez-Almanzar later allegedly admitted to the crime.
All three have been denied bail due to their out-of-state residency, with preliminary hearings set for Nov. 8.
