A 15-foot food and drink trailer was stolen from the R.A.M. Farms Pumpkin Patch, located at 716 N. Daubenberger Rd, sometime between 5:30 and 9 p.m. last night.
R.A.M. Farms owner Karen Macedo says the trailer is worth about $20,000, including the equipment that was inside the trailer. Fortunately, there was no money being held in the trailer since the pumpkin patch closed after Halloween.
However, Macedo had planned on using the trailer to sell food and drinks at R.A.M. Farms' upcoming Field of Ice temporary ice skating rink.
“Hopefully it will turn up if it’s not already being used by someone in Mexico or something,” said Macedo. “It’s really a problem because we were planning on using it to serve hot drinks and food when the ice skating rink opens Nov. 29. If it doesn’t turn up, then we’ll have to figure something else out.”
Turlock's first-ever temporary outdoor ice skating rink will measure 60-feet by 80-feet in size, and will be open until Jan. 12.
The theft was reported to Turlock police. Anyone with information can call Macedo at (209) 649-07078 or the Turlock Police Department at (209) 668-5550.
