Intruder breaks into Elliot Hall, damages vending machine

On Thursday at 2 a.m., someone shattered the east side doors of Elliot Hall , entered the building and broke the glass on a snack vending machine. The intruder then left without taking any money or any of the machineâÄôs foodstuffs, according to the police report. The break in came at an inopportune time said Shawn Taher , representative of Taher Dining and Vending Service , which handles all University snack vending machines. âÄúI wish they would have waited two weeks,âÄù he said, because he is in the process of installing anti-theft camera equipment in all of his 1,000 vending devices. Taher added that this was the first time in his five years doing business on campus that one of his vending machines had been broken into without anything being stolen.
