Theft from Ice Cream Truck

SALISBURY, Md. - Police in Salisbury are investigating a theft from an ice cream truck.

Police say on October 12, at approximately 5:50 P.M., officers of the Salisbury Police Department met with the victim in the lobby of the police department in reference to theft.

The investigation revealed that the victim had been operating the Coneheads Ice Cream truck in the area of Delaware Avenue and W. Main Street when the suspect stole an undisclosed amount of money from a cash bucket.

Police say the victim allowed the adult male suspect to enter the ice cream truck and travel around with him conducting the sales. While the victim was distracted conducting a transaction the suspect grabbed the bucket containing the money and attempted to flee from the ice cream truck. The victim attempted to retrieve the bucket from the suspect and a brief struggle ensued.

Police say the suspect removed money from the bucket and fled from the ice cream truck.

The victim then followed the suspect in the ice cream truck and eventually convinced the suspect to get back on the truck.

The victim then drove into the Salisbury Police Department parking lot to report the incident at which time, police say the suspect again exited the truck on foot.

Officers were able to locate and identify the suspect a short time later and the investigation is on going at this time.
