Burglars do big damage to Rec center for bubblegum machine

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

    Burglars knocked a hole through the wall of an East Albany recreation center to steal a bubblegum machine.

     Someone used a sledgehammer to break into Thornton Community Center early Monday morning. 
     When the alarm sounded, the crooks ripped wires out of it to try to stop it.  
     All they took was a bubble gum machine like this one.
Thornton Community Center Supervisor Gloria Bridges said "Did a lot of damage.  We're going to have to pay to replace that wall back there.  And also to get the alarm fixed.  Did a lot of damage for a bubble gum machine."

The hole was boarded up.
