Thieves Make Off With Frozen Beverage Machine

It’s not likely the suspects in a robbery in Bridgeport wanted to make their own snow-cones or slushies but police are investigating after they robbed a local smoke shop of its frozen beverage machine Monday night.

Police say several suspects entered the Smokers Spot store on Park Avenue, demanding $2,700 from an employee.

The worker said he didn’t have access to that amount of money.

The suspects hung around for about an hour waiting for the owner, implying that they were armed with guns.

The suspects then ordered the employee to help load the store’s frozen beverage machine into their vehicle, saying the employee would wind up as “Swiss cheese” if he didn’t comply.

When the store owner arrived on scene later, he told officers he’d borrowed money from one of the suspects, who he believed lived in the Bronx, New York.

So far there’ve been no arrests and there were no injuries reported.
