Apparently they wanted more than just a single Pepsi. A couple of thieves backed up a truck to pick up a Pepsi machine and the entire thing was caught on video.
It happened Wednesday morning in Spokane Valley, Washington, KREM reported.
And this isn’t the first time the machine outside ProFormance Lube Center had been targeted.
A few weeks ago, someone tried to take it, but they weren’t able to, business owner Ryan King told KREM. But they did cut the power cord and knocked over the vending machine.
This time the men took the machine, which has been found by police, but it didn’t have any change left in it, KREM reported.
ProFormance Lube Center is across the street from a police station, KHQ reported.
And hauling the machine away wasn’t an easy task. KHQ reported it weighed about 700 pounds.
“I was amazed because it’s pretty heavy. It just goes to show you how brazen criminals are,” King told KHQ.
