CHESTERFIELD, VA -- Police here are searching for two suspects, a man and woman, who were caught on a security camera stealing hundreds of dollars in quarters from a restaurant gameroom during business hours -- while customers and employees were present. | SEE VIDEO

Jay Dean, owner of Cici's Pizza on Commonwealth Centre Parkway, said he didn't realize for a few days that the money was missing. Employees reviewed the surveillance video and realized the female suspect pretended to play the games while her male accomplice crouched down behind her, out of sight of employees, and broke into two machines using a pry bar.

The ravenous duo is also seen taking pizza slices.
