Vending machine mishap nets citationPublished 11:10am Wednesday, November 30, 2011 Updated 8:41am Tuesday, December 6, 2011
An effort to snag a stuck candy bar ended up costing a 35-year-old woman far more than the price of her purchase when she allegedly broke the front glass in a vending machine at the Fergus Falls CARE Unit.
Police reported that the woman, Jean Marie Adams, had purchased a candy bar at a machine in the unit, where she is currently staying.
However, when the candy bar became stuck, Adams allegedly attempted to knock it loose by pushing her buttocks into the front glass of the machine.
Her attempt, however, was too much for the machine, and the glass broke mid-push.
Adams was cited for misdemeanor criminal damage to property. The damage to the machine, owned by Braun Vending, was estimated at $400.
