Squeeze Juice Truck Stolen, Then Abandoned In Queens (Weird)

For those who frequent Union Square, the Squeeze juice truck is simply part of the scenery. You know, the big, pink truck that cannot be missed. Well, a former — and evidently disgruntled — Squeeze employee managed to steal it from a Brooklyn parking lot.
The suspect was fired after just two weeks of employment, when the Squeeze owner Karliin Brooks discovered that he was a former convict. Apparently, early Sunday morning, he trashed the prep kitchen and stole the truck. Brooks put out a plea for help to local news teams, noting that the brightly-colored truck housed 1,500 bottles of juice, which retail at $10 a pop.
Monday night, Brooks received an anonymous call letting her know that the truck was found on the border of Queens and Nassau Counties — a solid 13 miles from where it was stolen. Police are still searching for the ex-employee, and now Brooks must deal with truck repairs along with the cost of lost product and business. Usually, we'd warn our readers to beware this juice-jacking fiend, but we're pretty sure this was an isolated incident. Only in New York, folks. (NBC New York)
