A popular Connecticut ice cream van was robbed and badly damaged, and now the store says it may need to close for good.
Nana’s Ice Cream serves many areas including Stafford, Vernon, Rockville, and Enfield.
The ice cream truck was broken into, badly damaged, and any remaining ice cream was stolen, the shop said in a Facebook post.
A couple of feet of the tailpipe and catalyst were also stolen.
“This ice cream season, with COVID, has undoubtedly been very busy. Many of my money-making events were missing, fireworks, carnivals, fairs, sports, school days, graduations, citywide events, summer camps, daycare, lakes and swimming pool. I held out, driving around neighborhoods, car parades and some birthday parties, “the owner said in a statement.
The other ice cream truck, located at the Roys Garage in Stafford, needs to be repaired, which is a big expense, the ice cream shop said.
