Braintree Police report they are looking for a couple of dudes who have figured out how to get coins out of vending machines.
According to police, the pair robbed two vending machines at the Holiday Inn Express in Braintree last Wednesday:
It appears the suspects were able to access the locking mechanism on the candy machine by removing the coin/change flap and placing a tool up through this opening to the lock. The Coke machine had no physical damage to it; it is unsure if the suspect(s) had a key to the machine or if they were able to access the lock some other way.
Police say the two may be the same lock pickers who got a laundromat change machine in Auburn to spill its guts 4 1/2 hours earlier.
