Chicken wing thieves

Men steal 26,000 pounds of chicken wings

Remember the rumor about the chicken wing shortage?  Ever wonder what Ocean's Eleven would be like if they opted to rob a Tyson Chicken Wings factory instead of a casino? Wonder no more!

Georgia police arrested Renaldo Jackson and Dewayne Patterson after suspicions that the duo stole over $65,000 worth of chicken wings from a Tyson Chicken storage facility.

The duo somehow made out with over 26,000 pounds of chicken wings at a typical retail price of $12.50 per five-pound package.

A woman claiming to be Patterson's mother told reporters that she was surprised by the charges, saying he's a "law-abiding person...I don't understand that at all."

The duo was charged with one count of of felony theft and released on a bond.

Where do you even store that many pounds of frozen chicken without a reasonably enormous freezer? Were these two planning to sell the goods on some sort of chicken wing black market? Is there even a market for 25,000 pounds of chicken in the Georgia area? A lot of unanswered questions here.
