Killeen Police Make Arrest in Reported Food Truck Theft.
On January 29, 2020, at approximately 1:40 PM, a woman called the Killeen Police Department to report that an unknown person had stolen her food truck. Rosalind Edwards, 53, reported an unknown male driving a green truck towed her 2019 Concession food trailer from her driveway in the 3500 block of Dustin Court. Edwards advised she tried to catch the person, but was blocked by an unknown person in another vehicle.
An investigation into the alleged theft revealed the food truck had not been stolen. It had been repossessed by the owner. Edwards had not fulfilled her obligations with the owner when she purchased the food truck. Edwards was aware the food truck had not been stolen, but had in fact been repossessed before she filed a police report with the Killeen Police Department.
Detectives obtained a warrant for False Report to a Police Officer, issued by Justice of the Peace William “Bill” Cooke. Killeen police officers arrested Edwards on Saturday, February 1 on the warrant and transported her to the Killeen City Jail. Edwards was arraigned by Justice of the Peace Daryl K. Peters and he issued a $5,000 bond; Edwards has been released on bond.
The Killeen Police Department would like to thank the many citizens who saw the news reports and called in TIPS about the location of the food truck.
