Two Accused Of Breaking Into Food Trucks Causing $1,200 In Damage

FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) — Two men are facing charges after being accused of breaking into food trucks, according to Fayetteville police.

Police were investigating the break-in of six separate food trucks off College Avenue near Lake Fayetteville Jan. 31.

The suspects damaged the doors of the trucks and vandalized the inside and outside of each truck, and caused $1,200 worth of damage, according to police. Police said $350 was stolen.

Investigators said Gabriel Gass, 18, Andres Barrett, 18, and two juvenile boys were responsible.

Barrett was arrested on unrelated charges Feb. 13. Investigators talked to Barrett about the food truck burglaries and a commercial burglary the same night on Township Avenue. Police said Barrett told them he was involved in the commercial burglary on township, but denied participating in the food truck break-ins.

Police said that based off the date of the burglaries and the close proximity of their locations, Barrett will face charges of the food truck break-ins as well.

Barrett and Gass are now both facing charges of commercial burglary, criminal mischief, and theft of property.
