NorCo Police Investigate Vending Machine Thefts

NORTH COVENTRY PA – A male subject seen during early morning hours Tuesday (Oct. 27, 2020) on video surveillance footage is wanted by the North Coventry Police Department in at least one of two alleged thefts from vending machines that occurred at separate locations, its CrimeWatch website reported.

Police said vending machines located at Buckwalter Motorsports, in the 900 block of East Schuylkill Road, and at the North Coventry Car Wash, in the 800 block, both “were broken into and all money from within was removed.” Officers determined the theft at the car wash occurred sometime between 2:32 a.m. and 2:42 a.m. Video from that spot shows a man “breaking into the machine and leaving on foot.”

Still photos from the video footage did not accompany the report.

Anyone with information regarding either theft is asked to call the police department at (610) 323-8360, or offer information anonymously at its website “Submit A Tip” page, here.
