S. Side motel guest leaves behind 15 stolen E-N racks
By Brian Chasnoff - Express-News

Police on Sunday found 15 San Antonio Express-News vending machines — all emptied of their contents — inside a South Side motel room that a man had reserved using his actual name, police said.

“All the newspapers are gone,” Officer Raul Gonzaba said. “All the change is gone.”

Gonzaba would not release the name of the suspected thief until an arrest is made.

A manager of the Sunset Inn Motel in the 1100 block of Roosevelt Ave. found the stolen vending machines with cut locks and called police because he “wants them out,” Gonzaba said.
