Men accused of stealing $65,000 in chicken wings from Ga. storage facility, report says
(CBS/AP) DORAVILLE, Ga. - 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.
Police said there was no word on the whereabouts of the wings.
