Stolen food truck uncovered, “basically a shell”

Update: As of 6am this morning, a local food truck that was stolen has been recovered. The owner of the Sweet T’s Southern Style Kitchen truck, Travis Hyde, has been on the hunt for several days and while he did find his source of livelihood, it was not how he left it.

“This is what we are left with, basically a shell,” Hyde wrote to his Facebook followers who have been sharing his story since the truck was reported missing. “They removed the entire engine and transmission, all of our equipment, our hood, sink, water heater and fresh tank, half the panels, our rear doors and storage box, all lighting, pretty much everything and I am pretty sure they urinated in it as well.”

Hyde has insurance but even that won’t cover the extensive damage to the truck. There’s a Go Fund Me campaign rolling which has raised $2,575 so far. To help get Hyde back on his feet, to restore the jobs of his employees, and to continue treating yourself to fresh southern style street fare, chip in to help reach the goal of $30,000.
