Vending Machines Burglarized In St. Mary Parish
Friday night St. Mary Parish Sheriff's deputies responded to a report of a theft at the District 11 Fire Sub Station in Glencoe. On arrival deputies discovered a vending machine outside the station had been broken into. During the investigation they learned another vending machine outside a business on Big Four Corners Road had also been burglarized. Surveillance video from that burglary shows a man breaking into the machine at about 2:30am. A grand total of $95 was taken from both machines with a total of $500 in damages to each machine. Fire Chief Clarence Clark says proceeds from the machines benefit volunteer fire fighters in the district. Anyone with information about the burglaries is asked to call the St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office at 337-828-1960.
