BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — Bridgeport police are investigating the theft of a frozen beverage machine.
An employee at the store told police that the robbers told him he would be "Swiss cheese" if he didn't help them load the machine into their van on Monday night.
Authorities say when the robbers first entered the Smokers Spot on Park Avenue they asked for the store's owner and waited an hour for him to show up. The men demanded $2,700 from the employee, and took the beverage machine when the employee told them he didn't have access to that amount of cash.
The store owner arrived later and told police that he had borrowed money from a man believed to be one of the suspects.
No arrests have been made.
