Thief makes off with trailer used as mobile pretzel parlor

Posted October 11

— It's a twisted crime: Someone stole the Pretzel Chef trailer, a food truck that operates in Fairbanks, Alaska.

The Pretzel Chef is a fixture at summer events such as the Tanana (TA-nah-naw) Valley State Fair, selling pretzels in various flavors, including a pizza pretzel.

Co-owner Michelle Hajdukovich (heye-DOOK-oh-vich) tells the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner ( that the white, 14-foot trailer had been parked for the winter.

It has a concession window taking up most of one side, and inside, two ovens, cheese pumps, a cooler and a cash register.

The loss is estimated at $30,000.

Hajdukovich says the trailer looks like a "toy hauler" that could be used for carrying four-wheelers or snowmobiles. She says she hopes the thief will abandon the trailer once it's found to be a food truck.
