The following arrest information was supplied by the Bannockburn Police Department. It does not indicate a conviction.
A vending machine at the LaQuinta Inn & Suites may have been tampered with and robbed between 3 p.m. July 15 and 9 a.m. July 16, according to a Bannockburn Police report.
An employee of the inn told police she discovered metal shavings near the machine and noticed the key lock appeared damaged, according to the report.
