ST. LOUIS COUNTY, MO (KTVI) – There’s a turf war going on in one north St. Louis County neighborhood and it’s over ice cream. Authorities say an ice cream truck turf war turned criminal on Easter morning.
It happened on Parker Road near Highway 367 when police say one ice cream truck operator was cut off by another who allegedly threatened him.
Witnesses say the second driver then started damaging the first driver’s truck, music siren and merchandise. The driver of the damaged truck says he’s had the same route for seven years and the second driver wanted to take over his route.
But the real kicker here is that both drivers work for the same company. The victim says he plans on keeping his route and that other driver may lose his job.
