Editor’s Insight: The video on this TV news report provides a fairly good picture of the suspect; hopefully, someone will recognize him.

The presence of surveillance cameras does not appear to discourage many vending burglars.

Vending operators serving public locations should consider eliminating cash completely as a way to discourage burglary. This makes sense given the higher price points in these machines. 0914-11 By Elliot Maras
