"Crack Pipe" Vending Machines Popping Up in New York

Suffolk County officials are on alert following the discovery of what appears to be three crack pipe vending machines. 

The town of Brookhaven received complaints about the machines last weekend and now authorities trying to find out who planted them. 

Fox News reported the machines featured the words “Sketch Pens” and;

It would dispense a small glass tube and a filter for $2 in the form of eight quarters.

The dispensers were initially reported to officials as merely pen dispensers as it was the first week of school in the community.

“You think you've heard of everything,” Town of Brookhaven Supervisor Ed Romaine said at the conference on Monday…

“It’s a crack pipe,” Romaine added, as he held up one of the items. “It’s a ceramic, glass pipe disguised as a pen … There’s a filter in there that you use to smoke crack.”

There are reports that angry locals destroyed one of the machines as authorities continue their search for any others that are around.
