2 arrested for stealing $65,000 worth of chicken wings

DORAVILLE, Ga. -

It sounds like an unusual heist, but police say that two men were arrested for stealing thousands of dollars of chicken wings.

According to records obtained by FOX 5 News from the Gwinnett County Police Department, Dewayne Patterson, 35, of Lithonia, and Renaldo Jackson, 26, of Stone Mountain, stole $65,000 in frozen chickens from Nordic Cold Storage in the 4300 block of Pleasantdale Road in Doraville where the two were employed.

The theft reportedly happened just before noon on January 12. Police reports state that the men had rented a truck and backed it to the bay doors. Video obtained by investigators show the men using a forklift to load 10 pallets of Tyson frozen chicken wings.

The wings have yet to be found, but the men were put on ice this Wednesday being arrested for felony theft by taking. According to Gwinnett County Jail records, they have since been release on $2,950 bond.

The heist comes two weeks before the Super Bowl which is known as a big day for wings and the same week the American Chicken Council warned that wings might be harder to find this year due to the record price of corn.
