    A popular food truck will soon be back on the streets of Wilmington, Delaware after spending Friday morning in Philadelphia. But it wasn't because someone hired it out. Rather, it was driven there by some very bold thieves. A photo shows two of the suspected bandits actually posing in the stolen Wildwich Food Truck, wearing the company's t-shirts.
