Austin police still need the public’s help identifying burglars targeting food trucks.

Investigators say the two men are connected to up to 50 different incidents, dating back to April, and mostly occurring at food truck parks across the city.

  • 2 men connected to 50 different incidents
  • Burglars stole iPads, money boxes, and tip jars
  • The burglars leave with at most $150

Most of the incidents cost food truck operators more money to repair damage than the price to replace any items stolen.

Most park operators have security cameras, as well as additional lighting.

Austin Police have released surveillance footage of a few of the burglaries, hoping someone will recognize the burglars.

This case remains under investigation by the APD Commercial Burglary Unit. Please call 512-974-6941 if you have any information.
