Published 12:00 am Saturday, June 3, 2006

The Ironton and Coal Grove police departments are looking for the individual or individuals responsible for stealing four newspaper vending machines.

One Ironton Tribune machine was stolen on April 30 from Coal Grove Foodfair. The rack in front of the Tribune was vandalized that same night.

On Sunday, two machines, one at the Ironton Post Office and the other at Buster’s Bi-Lo on Third and Lorain streets, were stolen.

The machines contain less than $50 but are expensive to replace or repair.

Anyone with information can call the Ironton Police at (740) 532-2338. The Tribune has offered a $500 reward for information leading to the arrest on the individuals responsible.
