Sylvia Nino of Gyldis Pizza said that is where the truck is typically parked each night.

She estimates the value of the truck is between $85,000 and $90,000. Without it, there will be a big impact on the couple's business.

"We have insurance, but we don't know. We'll have to talk to them," she said.

Nino said she was looking forward to a "really good summer" with the truck and hopes to get it back soon. Police, meanwhile, are on the lookout for the bright red truck.

"They say that they will get it because it's not easy to hide," she said.

This is the second theft of a highly recognizable vehicle. In July 2019, a food trailer belonging to Frenchie’s Poutinerie was stolen from the Sagebrush neighbourhood. It was found near Barriere in August of that year.

Anyone who spots the Gyldis Pizza truck is asked to call the Kamloops RCMP non-emergency line at 250-828-3000.
