OC Police Investigate Vending Machine Thefts

Posted: Updated:

OCEAN CITY, Md. - Police are investigating a series of vending machine thefts in Ocean City.

According to the Ocean City Police Department, approximately $1,300 in cash was stolen from eight vending machines located on several floors of the Dunes Manor Hotel. Officers took the call on Monday around 8:25 a.m. Police say in addition to the stolen cash, around $8,000 in damage was reported.

A Coca-Cola representative reportedly told police the machines were last serviced on Feb. 23. However, hotel guests began making complaints about the damaged machines between April 2 and April 4, according to police.

Police say another Coca-Cola vending machine was broken into between 11 p.m. on April 1 and 9:30 a.m. on April 2 at 3305 Coastal Highway, but the machine was not stocked and did not contain any cash. The would-be thief damaged the bill collector with a pry tool. Police say due to the proximity of this location to the Dunes Manor Hotel, there is a strong likelihood that these two incidents were committed by the same suspect(s).

No surveillance footage was captured during any of the thefts, and there is no suspect information at this time. Anyone with information regarding these thefts is asked to contact Pfc. Kory Moerschel at kmoerschel@oceancitymd.gov.
