Vending Machine Thieves Arrested

Breaking into a soda machine isn’t funny, especially if two people been doing it for more than 20 years.

Christian County officials have arrested two St. Louis residents who’ve been allegedly traveling through central and southern Illlinois burglarizing vending machines in small towns.

Stephen O’Conner and Aimie Onkle were arrested after witnesses saw the two breaking into a vending machine in Clay County. Police say the two have extensive criminal backgrounds dating back to the 1990’s.
