A 25-year-old Buffalo man and a 21-year-old East Aurora woman were arrested Thursday afternoon by Amherst police for allegedly methodically breaking into vending machines at a number of East Amherst public sites over the weekend.

Joseph Wilson and Lauren Lind were taken into custody about 3 p.m. and charged with burglary and petit larceny, according to the Amherst Police Facebook page. Amherst police said the “numerous tips” they received from local social media sites led to the identification of the suspects.
