The Department of Public Safety is offering a $500 reward for the identification of a male individual thought to be connected to the string of Coca-Cola machine vandalisms on AU’s campus.

The Coca-Cola machines were vandalized with white spray paint and caulk on Oct. 18 and Jan. 30, The Eagle previously reported. The dollar bill and coin-receiving mechanisms were disabled during both instances.

The reward poster has two black-and-white images of a male wearing a hat, white shirt and black sweatshirt. The male is not defacing the machines in either of the pictures.

Public Safety is still investigating the incidents that took place in the Ward Circle Building, Mary Graydon Center, Bender Arena and Hurst Hall, according to Associate Director of Media Relations Maralee Csellar.

Tips can be submitted anonymously to dps@american.edu or call in to Public Safety at 202-885-2527.
