The “Twice the Ice” vending machine on Highmarket Street was vandalized over the weekend.
A Georgetown man stopped by the big-box ice dispenser at about 8:25 a.m. Sunday and saw the door was hanging from the frame of the building.
Police report seeing pry marks near the hinges and the door was being held up by a lock.
The change box was missing and, according to the owner who lives in Charleston, about $268 in dollar bills and change was taken.
He said about $200 worth of equipment — including the money box and a dollar bill counter was also stolen.
Police currently have no suspects in the vandalism and theft.
