Stolen Blue Bell truck recovered complete with ice cream shipment

The truck was found abandoned. The kicker, though, is that none of the ice cream was taken.

The case of the missing ice cream truck started last Wednesday. The delivery driver left the keys in the truck when he went inside the store, KFOR reported

Security camera footage showed someone hanging around the loading dock. The man disappears for a moment then the truck is driven off, police said.

The next day, the truck and all of the ice cream, was found in Oklahoma City, around 11 miles away.

Police believe someone just needed a ride.

"With all the property still inside of it and not being torn up or vandalized in any way, it appears that's probably the motive," Capt. Bradley Rule told KFOR.

Police are still looking for whoever took the truck and they could face felony charges. 

A Blue Bell spokesperson said the ice cream would be thrown away because it was out of the company's possession, KFOR reported.
