vending machine fire

NEW BERN, NC (WTVR) – It’s happened to most people at least once. You go to the vending machine, put in change, and nothing comes out.

One North Carolina woman handled the situation in an unusual way.

Instead of reporting the problem and getting her money back, Deborah Johnson lit a piece of newspaper and stuck it in the machine, setting it on fire. Minutes later, the machine was ablaze.

The woman is charged with two felonies and has admitted to setting the fire.
