Details of the Theft Case:

According to a criminal complaint, Brookville Borough Police Officer Markle, stated that three men entered the Brookville Firemen’s Club, twisted the locks on two gaming machines, and stole approximately $5,316.00 in cash.

The complaint states that initially Brookville Police Officer Tosh was called to the club on Monday, March 6, for a report of a burglary. He spoke with a trustee at the club who stated that two Pennsylvania Skill machines were broken into during business hours using some sort of pliers to break the locks. Once in the game system, it is believed the suspect knew the internals of the system because they knew how to remove the bill stacker, take the money, and correctly replace the stackers.

Officer Markle then met with Officer Tosh and learned there was no forced entry, the complaint continues.

After watching many hours of surveillance video, Officer Markle saw three, white men pull into the Firemen’s Club parking lot in what was possibly a Chevy Trailblazer, possibly silver in color. The three men entered the club and two of them immediately went to the rear Skills machine, and another man went to bar to act as a lookout, the complaint states.

Then, two of the men moved to the Skills machine closest to the bar and the other man moved to a different location still acting as a lookout and used hand signals to communicate with the other two men. Then, the lookout was motioned to come to the machine they were breaking into, according to the complaint.

The men tried to break into a third machine, but someone was playing the machine. Two of the men left the club while the other played a machine before leaving a minute later, the complaint continues.

All three men met at the Chevy Trailblazer and left the parking lot after having been there for about five minutes, the complaint indicates.

Following his investigation, Officer Markle filed criminal charges against 33-year-old Travis W. Dailey, and 60-year-old Charles W. Dailey.

No information is available on the third man involved in the burglary.
