Woman charged, man wanted after stealing over $3,500 from gaming machines at Lancaster County tavern

LANCASTER COUNTY, Pa.-- A woman has been charged and a man is wanted after the duo allegedly stole over $3,500 from two gaming machines.

Patricia Noll, of Akron, is facing theft and criminal conspiracy to commit theft charges.

On February 9, Noll and an unidentified male suspect entered the Cocalico Tavern, and removed over $3,500 from two PA Skills Gaming Machines in a period of 40 minutes.

According to the criminal complaint, the male suspect used a tool to gain entry into both machines, which took a total of 40 minutes. During that time, Noll is seen sitting next to the suspect, with both constantly scanning the bar and trying to conceal what they are doing.

When the pair left the bar, the male suspect was seen entering the front passenger side of a dark-colored Dodge Journey.

Police were able to run a driver's license search, which gave them Noll as a suspect.

On February 28, police went to Noll's home in the 3200 block of Rothsville Road in Ephrata, and found a dark-colored Dodge Journey in the driveway.

On March 1, Noll admitted to police that she was at the Cocalico Tavern and said that something was "going on at the gaming machines" but she "wasn't sure what it was."

She told police that after she left the bar with the male suspect, he asked if she needed any money, and handed her $200.

Noll claims that she didn't know who the man was.

Police are still attempting to identify the male suspect in the above videos and photos.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Keith Neff or the East Cocalico Township Police Department at 717 336-1725 or leave a tip on Crimewatch.
