JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

One suspect kept the clerk distracted while the other tore into a vending machine, according to Jonesboro police.

According to the report, the men entered the Hampton Inn in Jonesboro last week.

JPD said one man kept the clerk talking while his partner in crime broke into the vending machines.

The report stated he got a couple hundred dollars and did a couple hundred dollars in damage to the machine.  

The cameras also captured an image of the vehicle they were driving, a white Ford Explorer.

If you think you can identify either one of these men, it's worth some Crimestoppers cash.

Warrant watch this week includes Joseph Anderson and Lucas Anderson, no relation.

Joseph Anderson just cracked double-digits with his 10 warrants.

Lucas has 40 warrants for him out of JPD and the Craighead County Sheriff's Office. 35 of them are for failing to appear.

If you can help police find Lucas or Joseph Anderson, it's worth money.  

Call in that tip to Crimestoppers at 935-STOP or text it to 274637.
