UPDATE: Haydel’s Bakery says they will give away a free king cake per week for a year if anyone has credible information that leads to the recovery of the stolen truck.

NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – A truck containing Mardi Gras supplies was stolen from Haydel’s Bakery last night.

In a Facebook post, the popular purveyor of king cakes said the 24 foot International Freight truck was stolen in the early morning hours of January 19.

A surveillance video shows a hooded figure walking toward the truck at 2:45 a.m.

The truck has a crack on the bottom of the rear door on the driver’s side and a scratch on the back of the truck on the driver’s side.

Haydel’s is asking anyone who spots the truck to contact the Jefferson Parish Police Department.
