I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!

And, we scream louder when someone tries to steal the ice cream truck!

It happened last week in Vineland! According to the Daily Journal, as the ice cream vendor was in the back of the truck serving up cones, push-ups and other novelties, a man jumped into the driver's seat of the truck and started to drive away!

The ice cream vendor is quoted as saying he tried to grab the steering wheel and push the man out of seat, but had no luck. (Hey, he's an ice cream man, not a super hero!)

This all happened last Wednesday evening about 9:30pm near the Walnut Manor Apartment Complex on East Walnut Road.

The Daily Journal says the truck ended up jumping a curb and crashing into a fence and a patio door. The hijacker got away, and police are still looking for him.

The 73-year-old ice cream vendor was not injured. The truck sustained some front end damage, and had to be towed away.

Vineland Police are investigating. They have not released any further information. (We're guessing that either there is no further information, or they are worried about prompting a string of copy-cat ice cream hijackings....)
