Lowcountry family raising money after thieves steal generator for food truck
CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) —
Tim Brock and his wife Natalie are the owners of the "Brunch Holiday," the food truck that has been their livelihood for almost two years.
"The food truck is our only source of income," said Tim Brock. "This is how I feed my child. This is how we pay our bills."
Around 4 a.m. Thursday, two men were caught on surveillance video stealing the generator from their food truck.
"The Generator was bolted down to a wielded chain. It was double wrapped and locked. You can just see them going to town and working on it .”
A North Charleston Police say a Honda 6500 Generator was stolen, valued at $4,000 from the Charleston Commercial Kitchen lot at 5600 Rivers Avenue.
Natalie Brock says the incident couldn't have come at a worse time. "My husband is recovering from his second hip replacement. We haven’t been able to work for two weeks, and now we don’t know when we’re going to be able to return back to normal business.
"It’s just a heartless act this time of year.”
Without a generator, Tim says they are not able to use the food truck. "The Generator is the life, and blood, and heart of the Food Truck. It runs the entire truck. This particular one is needed to facilitate us going out and doing our job."
The Brock family hopes someone will be able to recognize the two men in the video.
A GoFundMe page has been set up to help them purchase a new generator. You can click here if you would like to donate.
