This burglar knew his target—a vending machine—but couldn't seem to get much out of it, WECT reports. Surveillance video shows the man at Miami's Dominion Tower apartment building pushing a vending machine into an elevator, where police say he took it to the eighth floor. "He was quite brazen, and he was all caught on camera," says a Miami Police source. "What he wanted to do was either take the money or also take the vending machine." The machine's money slot was found damaged but no money was taken. It happened May but police are still seeking a slim man in his 50s or 60s with gray facial hair, the Miami Herald reports.
