Fla. business owner indicted for theft after allegedly refusing to deliver food truck to Louisville man

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Florida business owner has been indicted after authorities say he failed to deliver a food truck to a Louisville man as promised, according to a news release from the Kentucky Office of the Attorney General.

Last week, a Jefferson County grand jury indicted Russell Elwood Hunnewell, owner of Florida Concession, for theft by deception in an amount exceeding $10,000.

"The Office of the Attorney General conducted an investigation into allegations that in June, Hunnewell, 61, of Avon Park, Florida, failed to deliver a food truck that a Louisville man purchased over the Internet for $53,000," the news release states. "After failing to issue a refund to the Louisville man, Hunnewell ended all communications and now faces a class C felony charge."

Hunnewell is scheduled to be arraigned in Jefferson County Circuit Court at 11 a.m. on April 25, according to the news release. 

"One of the core missions of my office is to protect Kentucky families from scams and prosecute those who prey on consumers," said Attorney General Andy Beshear, according to the news release. "I applaud my Office of Consumer Protection for helping defend consumers from dishonest business owners who fail to provide trustworthy transactions."
