Seattle Food Truck Owners Report Unprecedented Surge In Thefts

SEATTLE, WA – For his loyal customers, the sight of Bo Saxby’s bright gold “Cheese Wizards” truck around Seattle causes mouths to water and long lines to form. But Saxby says his truck – and his brick and mortar restaurant — have been the recent targets of what he describes as a rampant increase in crime.

“It’s a very drastic increase in vandalism theft and burglary,” Saxbe said. “We’ve had about $15,000 in stolen equipment. Over the last few years, we’ve made almost no calls to police for big thefts, but over the last few months, we’ve had five.”

Saxbe told KIRO 7 he’s not alone. He reached out to dozens of other Seattle food truck operators, and collected similar burglary, robbery and vandalism stories happening in the last six months.
