A young Maltese couple that run a popular bright-green food truck woke up to find a terrible sight this morning – their food truck has been vandalised and their generator had been stolen.
“We are very sorry but we will not be able to open for service today,” the operators of Tony’s Food Truck said in a statement today.
“A kind soul came to our truck during the night, and vandalised it, robbing our generator and some other valuable items from us.”
“We are still in shock and waiting for the police to come and investigate, our apologies for the inconvenience,” they said.
The food truck is renowned for its monthly specials as well as for often being parked up near Mater Dei hospital, becoming a local favourite among doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals working in the area.
People were livid with the news, with many saying they hoped the culprits behind the crimes were found, and others calling out the greed that led people to do this.
The owners have contacted police and are hoping officers may be able to find their generator, but, for the time being, the beloved food truck will be closed.
