Two men were arrested in Gwinnett County for allegedly stealing $65,000 worth of frozen chicken wings from a cold storage facility where they worked in Doraville.
Police say Dewayne Patterson, 35, and Renaldo Jackson, 26, stole the chicken wings from Nordic Cold Storage by using a rental truck and forklift. The bizarre theft comes at a time when demand and prices for chicken wings are at the highest. Chicken wings are also in high demand with the Super Bowl taking place this Sunday, February 3.
The men were arrested last week and charged with one count of felony theft by taking, the AJC reports. They were released the same day after posting a $2,950 bond.
There’s no word on the whereabouts of the chicken wings.
