Killeen: Woman who reported food trailer stolen arrested
A Killeen woman who reported on Jan. 29 that her food trailer was stolen from the driveway of her home has been charged with false report after police determined the trailer wasn’t stolen, but instead repossessed.
Rosalind Edwards, 53, was arrested on Saturday and was taken to the Killeen City Jail.
She was released after posting a $5,000 bond.
“An investigation into the alleged theft revealed the food truck had not been stolen,” Commander Ronnie Supak said in a press release Monday.
“It had been repossessed by the owner,” he said.
“Edwards had not fulfilled her obligations with the owner when she purchased the food truck. Edwards was aware the food truck had not been stolen, but had in fact been repossessed before she filed a police report with the Killeen Police Department,” he said.
Edwards told KWTX last week that her Zodiac Foods trailer, which has been on the streets of Killeen since Oct. 21, 2019, was the fulfillment of a dream.
She told KWTX and reported to Killeen police that at around 1:40 p.m. on Jan. 29 that a man driving a green truck towed the trailer out of her driveway in the 3500 block of Justin Court.
She said she tried to catch the man, but was blocked off by someone in another vehicle.
