Teen gets stuck in vending machine while trying to steal

Making headlines this week in California is a story about a teenage boy who got more than he bargained for when his arm became stuck in a vending machine after trying to steal a can of drink.

The 17-year-old youth, whose name was not released, reportedly reached inside the delivery door of the beverage vending machine when his arm got caught inside. A passer by saw him trapped and called the police.

Police, firefighters, paramedics and security staff worked for an hour using axes, crowbars and an air chisel to free the teen. They ultimately
succeeded by using a rotary saw to cut the lock on the vender door!

The teen was taken into custody and police said he might be charged with petty theft.
