Police Investigate the Thefts of Two Vehicles from Evans Street

Fairfield (NJ) The Fairfield Police Department is actively investigating the theft of two vehicles from the property of 5 Evans Street sometime between March 3 and March 5, 2012. Both vehicles are associated with UTZ foods that warehouses product at that location. One of the vehicles stolen was a 2009 white Ford Eco box truck and the other was a 2006 white Workman step van. Both vehicles contained various UTZ products such as potato chips, pretzels and cheese balls valued at approximately $5500.00.

These vehicle thefts comes in the wake of a previous vehicle theft that occurred sometime between February 24 and 25, 2012 at the Panera Bread warehouse, also located at 5 Evans Street. In that case, a 2006 International truck was stolen from the lot but was recovered a block away when it was believed that the engine automatically shut off as a result of the vehicle’s air brakes malfunctioning. No Panera Bread product was on the truck at the time of the theft.
