Report: Police Raid Food Trucks in Atlanta

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.”

The event is expected to return to Virginia Highland this week.

Food trucks have been exploding in popularity in Atlanta in the past few years. They have become an everyday part of the eating scene in Buckhead, where The Atlanta Food Truck Park Market opened this past spring at 1850 Howell Mill Road.
