GoFundMe Campaign Begun for Owner of Stolen Food Truck

A GoFundMe campaign began this month for the owner of a food truck stolen over Memorial Day weekend from its parking spot on Brookville Road in Silver Spring.

James Turner, a restaurant veteran with more than 30 years of experience, had recently received a license from the county to begin operating as Beltway Bistro when the vehicle was taken.

The truck, which was reported missing on Memorial Day, was found in Charles County on June 3, badly damaged and completely stripped of equipment.

According to reports, Turner had spent more than $50,000 on the truck.

So far, the campaign, which has a goal of $25,000, has raised over $58,000 from more than 900 donors.
