Two Men Accused Of Stealing $65,000 Worth Of Chicken Wings

These guys must have been pretty hungry;

DORAVILLE, Ga. (CBS/AP) – Two Georgia men were arrested Wednesday for allegedly stealing $65,000 worth of frozen chicken wings from a cold storage business where they worked, CBS Atlanta reports.

Police said storage facility employees 35-year-old Dewayne Patterson and 26-year-old Renaldo Jackson are charged with theft after stealing the wings from Nordic Cold storage in Doraville, just north of Atlanta.

A rental truck was pulled up to a bay door at the storage facility and was then loaded with 10 pallets of Tyson frozen chicken wings, according to a police report. Managers told police that Jackson used a forklift to load the wings wile Patterson served as a lookout.

CBS Atlanta reports that one five-pound bag of frozen Tyson’s chicken wings sells for about $12.50, and a nationwide chicken shortage is now driving up the price of wings. The station estimates that about 26,000 pounds of wings were stolen from the facility.
