Soda machine blown up in Spokane

A soda machine in front of Broadway Foods in Spokane was blown up Saturday night.

The culprits likely were some "neighborhood hoodlums," though no suspects had been identified late Saturday, said police spokesman Cpl. Mike Carr. Police received the call at 9:18 p.m.

Police were unable to determine what type of explosives were used, but the machine, in front of the store at 2229 W. Broadway Ave., sustained significant damage, he said.

Minutes before the machine was blown up, police received a call that explosives were being detonated in the area of Dutch Jakes Park on nearby College Avenue, likely by the same person or people.
