Over the past week and a half, three separate incidents of theft have occurred from change machines throughout Oxford. The machines, located in apartment complexes and laundry facilities on Chestnut Street, were opened or stolen, and the contents were removed. After initial investigations, the thefts appear to be related, according to Sgt. Jon Varley of the Oxford Police Department. The Oxford Police could not give a precise amount of money that had been stolen. The investigation is ongoing, though according to Varley, suspects have been identified, and the investigation is expected to conclude shortly.
