Maybe it was the temperatures starting to go back up, but someone decided to make off with a company’s ice machine.

East Baton Rouge Parish sheriff’s detectives were called to the Coburn Supply company Wednesday because of the theft.

The sheriff’s report says someone apparently kicked open a locked gate and stole the ice machine from the loading dock. Authorities say a man is seen carrying a large silver item, which matched the description of the ice machine, and loading that item into the rear of the van.
