Law enforcement officials in Washington D.C. have found a vending machine that was selling malt liquor disguised as a regular soda vending machine.
The machines were discovered in the Trinidad section of D.C., which is 15 minutes from The White House. D.C. blogger and writer for The District Curmudgeon Geoffrey Hatchard tweeted notes from the Trinidad Neighborhood Association meeting from Tuesday night.
According to the police officer at the meeting, the beer machines were in place in the neighborhood for a few months but were recently shut down. There have been inquiries directed at the supplier about how the switch was made but no one has stepped forward to take responsibility.
"The Pepsi machine was in front of a 4-unit apartment and of course no one claimed responsibility for it. It charged three dollars for the malt liquor so kids were buying it [cheaper for adults to get it at the store]," said Daniella Bays, the president of Trinidad Neighborhood Association.
