KANSAS CITY, KS – Who in the world steals a food truck? It’s the question that tops a Facebook post asking the community to keep their eyes peeled for ‘The Waffler’ food truck.

Owner Russell Viers said the truck was at an auto shop on N. 13th St. in Kansas City, Kansas getting a new starter when it disappeared. Police said they were called to the shop around 10:45 a.m. Thursday to make a report.

Viers said he’s out of the country, so it was his son Turo who made the discovery.

“At first I thought it was a joke, like there’s no way somebody stole my food truck,” says Turo Viers. “And then I realized it was serious.”

Russell Viers said they had big plans for the food truck. They were making some changes to add chicken and waffles to their menu. The upgraded food truck was set to launch mid-April, but the theft will push the date back.
