Second suspect in jail for Madera Co Lotto scratcher heist

Saturday, January 19, 2013

Madera County Sheriff's Deputies say 51-year-old Robert Leroy Cave turned himself in to Fresno authorities late Friday night.

Investigators say surveillance video captured Cave and 32-year-old Christopher Nunn cashing in stolen scratchers at a Fresno convenience store in November. The scratchers were taken from the 22 Mile House in Madera County. Surveillance video also captured that crime in action.

Deputies recently identified the suspects, and discovered Nunn was already in jail on unrelated charges. Cave told detectives he turned himself in because he couldn't take the heat following media coverage of the heist. The story received more than 3,700 views on the ABC30.com website alone.

Investigators say both suspects are members of a Fresno-based white supremacy group that's been tied to burglaries and home invasion robberies. Authorities are still searching for a third suspect.
