Joint trial date set for casino burglary | Crime
A joint trial has been set for November 6th in Asotin County Superior Court for the two men accused of burglarizing Lancer Lanes and Casino in May.
Troy Wilcoxon, 27, and James Nollette, 33, have pleaded not guilty to 1st-degree theft, 2nd-degree burglary, and 2nd-degree conspiracy to commit burglary. Thousands of dollars were allegedly taken from the Clarkston business in the early morning hours of May 23rd.
Clarkston Police Detective Sgt. Richard Muszynski stated in a court affidavit that it was obvious to him that it was an inside job, meaning an employee or former employee was involved because the suspect knew where certain things were and had turned off some of the lights in the business during the burglary. Wilcoxon was employed by the casino at the time of the alleged burglary and Nollette is a former employee, officials say.
The court document states that video cameras show the suspect entering the business from the area of the back door and exiting via a west side door which leads to the kitchen. "The suspect concealed himself by placing a large black plastic garbage bag over his upper body however, the suspect cut a hole in the bag for his face which is partly visible in the video," the affidavit says.
