A vending machine in building four containing chips, cookies and gum was vandalized on August 28, according to a representative from Gilly Vending Inc. the company that owns the machine.
Miami Dade College chief of public safety, Therese Homer, denied a request by The Falcon Times to view the incident report citing that the report was “confidential” despite Florida’s public records laws.
“There are other things going on, on campus,” Homer said. She said the incident was an “opportunity crime.”
According to Luigi Arturo Leal, the campus vending machine stocker, on Friday, August 28 a group of boys shattered the glass on the vending machine located immediately next to the cafeteria by kicking it in at around 6:30 p.m.
After taking several items out of the snack machine, Leal said that the noise from the shattered glass caught the attention of a public safety officer who came to see what had occurred. The group of boys than proceeded to run away. It is unclear if they were apprehended.
The vending machine has since been repaired.
