Security guard discovers stolen Haydel's truck, to land free king cake for a year

New Orleans LA Jan 22 2017 A St. Charles Parish security guard came across a truck with a sweet offering Friday morning.
Haydel's Bakery had put a call out for its stolen truck, offering one free king cake a week for a year to whoever helped find it.
The truck was located in St. Charles Parish about 2 a.m., where it had been abandoned.
The truck had been stolen at 2:45 a.m. Thursday morning. Images showed a man in a black hoodie approaching the truck before it was driven away.
"What a difference 24 hours makes!," wrote Haydel's on Facebook, adding that everything was found intact, and nothing had been stolen.
Posts sent out on Thursday asking for help finding the truck were shared over 1,500 times. The person who stole the truck has still not been identified.

Haydel's said it would be offering $2 off king cake purchases on Sunday (Jan. 22) as a way to show "appreciation for all of the support."
