Report: Police Raid Area Food Trucks

Five trucks were issued citations Wednesday in Virginia Highland.

Atlanta Police raided the food truck event in Virginia-Highland on Wednesday and issued citations for improper permits.

Five trucks were cited, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Each truck must have a license for each specific address they operate from.

“It is not a health or safety issue," event organizer Bettie Cagle told the AJC. "These guys are fully permitted and follow all of the health regulation codes. But when you are at an event and the police come and shut it down, there is a lot of speculation, which makes me nervous for the trucks.”

Food trucks are just about an every day part of the eating scene in Midtown and along the westside of town. The Atlanta Food Truck Park & Market opened this past spring at 1850 Howell Mill Road

Sounds weird to me too. However, we can't be too sure that established brick and mortar location restaurants are not throwing up flags and signals to the po-po because of the new lower cost competition.

I'm sure those officers enjoyed a free steak at the Highland Tap afterwards...
