Police believe a man who said he wanted to warm up in a laundromat smashed the glass on a vending machine inside and stole candy.
Bismarck Police Lt. Mike Wardzinski said an employee at King Koin Launderette, 2125 E. Thayer Ave., spoke to a man outside the business at 8:40 a.m. Sunday. The man wanted to go inside and warm up, and the employee said that was OK.
The employee, who was cleaning the parking lot, saw the man leave a little while later. Upon going back inside, the employee noticed glass had been broken on vending machines, Wardzinski said.
He said it appears some candy was stolen. Police are trying to get surveillance footage of the incident.
Wardzinski said there was a similar incident last week, in which someone stole money from a vending machine at a truck stop. It is not known whether the incidents were related.
