Sheriff's investigators are trying to identify four armed men who they say robbed a bingo parlor on Wake Forest Highway on Tuesday night.

The men showed guns when they went into the Daye-to-Daye Beach Bingo at 3709 Wake Forest Highway about 11:30 p.m., the sheriff’s office said in an appeal for help in identifying and finding the men.

The four took money and got into a car driven by a fifth man, investigators said. They did not disclose how much money was taken. No one was hurt.

Security cameras captured pictures of some of the men. Witnesses told investigators that one of the robbers had what appeared to be a dollar sign tattooed under his left eye.

Daye-to-Daye says on a website that it has bingo games nightly.

If anyone has information that might help authorities find the robbers, the sheriff’s office asked them to call Corporal Cox at 919-560-0887, the Sheriff’s Office Investigations Division at 919-560-0880 or Durham CrimeStoppers at 919-683-1200.

CrimeStoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to arrest and prosecution in felony crimes, and callers never have to identify themselves.
