    According to SJSO, a repair man came to service the claw machine at the store located at 2355 US 1 South in St. Johns County, when he noticed the machine was missing. 

    After contacting his manager, who said they did not take the machine, he told an assistant manager at Walmart that it was missing.

    According to the report, the Walmart employee said someone called the store and said they were picking up the broken claw machine for repairs. 

    They reviewed surveillance video, where deputies said three people were seen taking the machine, but they were not repair employees.

    The repair man told deputes that a similar incident happened in Gainesville.
