An ice cream truck driver is in jail charged with peddling more than snow cones and fudgecicles from his vehicle in Albuquerque’s South Valley.
The 21-year-old driver was arrested and charged with drug dealing after deputies say he was pulled over with $50 worth of marijuana in his truck.
“I’m really disappointed,” said Lonnie Nettles, who has lived in the area of Barcelona and Wilkinson SW for 50 years. “We used to have a good neighborhood. Any more, it’s kind of going down.”
“I’m really shocked,” said fellow neighborhood resident Argelia Barraza. “So I guess it will be the last time we’ll ever buy any ice cream.”
Deputies report that the bust is the second in two months of a driver for that ice cream truck company.
