Miami Police are investigating a burglary of a vending machine. According to investigators, the building security guard realized the vending machine, usually located on the first floor, was moved to the eighth floor with damage to the money slot.

Newly released surveillance video shows a Florida man accomplishing quite a feat.

Miami police are still trying to track down a man who is seen removing an entire vending machine from a wall and hauling it into an elevator at Miami’s Dominion Tower, an apartment building at 1400 NW 10th Ave.

You can see him clearly move the “wet floor” sign into the elevator door to keep it open.

The incident occurred May 1, 2018, cops say, but the man still hasn’t been caught.

According to investigators, a building security guard told cops at the time that she realized the vending machine that was usually located on the first floor was moved to the eighth floor with “damage to the money slot.”

A police spokeswoman says that no money or merchandise was taken but the machinery was damaged and moved from its original location.

If caught, the suspect will be charged with misdemeanor burglary and criminal mischief, added the spokeswoman.

Cops are asking the public for help in finding the suspect, a white male with a slim build, approximately 50 to 60 years old, with gray facial hair. Police don’t know if he lived in the building.
