Why Gamble? Couple Hits Jackpot by Looting Coke Machines

A couple hits it big at the Taj Mahal Casino Resort, leaving Atlantic City with $15,000 more than when they arrived.

But they didn't strike it rich at the slot machines or roulette wheels.

Police say the pair robbed 60 Coca-Cola vending machines on hotel floors of the resort complex.

Video surveillance shows a man and a woman using a master key to open the machines and clean out all the cash inside.

Authorities say they think they know who the woman is, and are searching for her and her male companion, according to the Press of Atlantic City.

Authorities say they may be involved with other similar thefts from vending machines in southern New Jersey.
