Condom machine stolen in Washington

A condom machine has been stolen from inside a bar in Bellingham, Washington.

The crime happened at the old Quarterback Pub, which has been closed for more than a year.

Bellingham Police spokesman Mark Young said the offender or offenders took the machine from the men's toilets and also damaged an ATM in the process.

The crime was reported after an employee from the auction company currently selling off the contents of the venue arrived at the hostelry.

It is not known whether or not there were any prophylactic devices left in it.

Earlier this year came the story of Miklos Antal, who tried to steal a condom machine in January after meeting a "hot girl".

According to the Metro, he wanted to make sure he would have condoms for later and did not have a lot of money on him, so came up with the plan to just take it.
