A chilly encounter


For one Fort Lauderdale ice cream truck operator, work will never be the same.

Patricia Turgeon, 37, owner of Pattie's Wagon, was robbed at gunpoint in her ice cream truck at 7 p.m. Sunday, while selling snow cones, Popsicles and ice cream cones in the Towngate community in Pembroke Pines.

A man, wearing a black cap, black shirt and black shorts, walked up to the truck and demanded Turgeon hand over the cash box.

She did. Luckily, no one was injured.

The man took off in a light color older model Honda or Toyota. He's still on the loose.

Anyone with information is asked to call Pembroke Pines police at 954-431-2225 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, at 954-493-8477.
