Deputies: Suspect tried to break into sweepstakes machine

Beaufort County deputies arrested a man accused of trying to break into a sweepstakes machine. They're still searching for another suspect.

They said Joseph Blizzard, of Pikeville, tried to break into a sweepstakes machine at Cratch's Mini Mart in Washington last November.

Deputies said they found master keys and lock picking tools when they arrested Blizzard Wednesday.

They're still looking for another man -- Edward Lewis Barns from Tarheel.

He is wanted on a charge of accessory after the fact.
