Low Speed Chase: Vallejo Man Arrested In Ice Cream Truck Jacking
(BANT) – Police say they arrested a Vallejo man Thursday in Fairfield on suspicion of stealing an ice cream truck and trying to carjack three other vehicles.
30-year-old Tony Walker was taken into custody in the 2800 block of Dover Avenue following a report of the ice cream truck theft at 9:56 a.m.
Walker allegedly stole the truck in the 700 block of Capricorn Circle and crashed it into a fence as he tried to drive through a yard.
Fairfield police spokesman Cade Beckwith says Walker ran from the truck and tried to carjack three other vehicles near Dover Avenue and Cement Hill Road.
Witnesses identified Walker as the suspect and he was taken to the county jail on suspicion of vehicle theft, carjacking and violating his probation.
No one was injured. There’s no word on whether Walker was playing the ice cream truck music while he was driving it.
