On Friday, April 19, someone broke into the vending machine by the gym, taking all of the food and money. Now that this has occurred, the vending machine owners have to taken matters into their own hands, deciding to only allow people to use credit cards to buy food from the vending machine. Even though the vending machine near the library was not burglarized they still decided to make it credit card pay, because they did not want to risk it getting burglarized again and lose profit. If someone tried to break into the vending machine now, there would be no physical cash to take.
We will probably never find out who broke into the vending machine because Las Lomas doesn’t have any cameras near the machines. This change will affect many students’ ability to get food from the vending machine as not many people have credit cards.
