Woman Sets Vending Machine on Fire
How many of us felt violated when we loose money at the vending machine!?
Have you ever felt like you had to go to this extreme!?
NEW BERN, N.C. — A New Bern woman was arrested after a surveillance camera recorded her setting fire to a vending machine outside a grocery store.
According to WCTI, Debra Johnson was arrested Monday in connection with the incident, which occurred shortly before 1:45 a.m. Saturday.
Police told the station that Johnson set fire to a soda machine outside the Piggly Wiggly store on Tatum Drive.
The incident was recorded by a surveillance camera. The video shows the suspect kicking the machine before lighting the fire.
After starting the fire, the suspect grabs a drink from another machine and walks away. Minutes later, flames can be seen shooting from the machine.
Authorities say about $35 worth of change melted in the small blaze.
Johnson reportedly told the judge in her first court appearance that she didn’t need a lawyer. She was given a second court date slated for next week after refusing to pay a $10,000 bond.
WCTI reports Johnson has a criminal history, however this is the first time she’s been charged with a felony.
It could have been worse…
