MEMPHIS, TN -- A pair of suspected burglars were apprehended last month by local law enforcement with a bulk vending machine in the back of their pickup truck.

According to local press reports, the crime duo is accused of ramming their truck into a local building supply company and making off with a vending machine located there. The two suspects, Brian Richmond and Kevin Alderson, have also been linked to a similar robbery at an auto parts store.

Witnesses on the scene noted that the bulk vender contained very little cash. Apparently the robbers decided it made a more appealing target than the thousands of dollars in equipment in the building supply store.
