Evansville Police say there have been break-ins to vending machines at various local businesses, including those in apartment laundry rooms and hotel snack stations.

Police say in these cases, it appears someone drilled into the coin receptacles to gain entry to the machines.

In addition to lost revenue, the cost of repairing that damage can be expensive.

Police ask you to report any suspicious behavior if you have noticed or may become aware of suspicious behavior or subjects to machines consistent with the above break-ins.

You can call EPD’s Crime Prevention Unit at 812-485-6135 or WeTip line at 1-800-78-CRIME.
