St. Petersburg police looking for stolen catering truck

ST. PETERSBURG — Police are looking for a man they say carjacked a vending truck over the weekend.

Officers were called at about 9:30 p.m. Saturday to a shopping center at 401 45th Ave. S in the Coquina Key area.

The truck's two occupants told police they'd stopped to use the restroom. One person had stayed with the truck when a masked man approached, police spokesman Mike Puetz said.

The gunman placed an object to the back of the driver's head, Puetz said. The woman told police she believed it was a gun. She got out and the man got behind the wheel and drove off.

The box truck, which has the words "Ace Catering" on the back, is still missing. It has a tag of 4540JH.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at (727) 893-7780.
