Huffington Post Two storage workers in Georgia are accused of stealing $65,000 worth of frozen chicken wings amid a high nationwide demand for the delicious Super Bowl snack. Dewayne Patterson, 35 and Renaldo Jackson, 26, allegedly used a rental truck on Jan. 12 to steal 10 warehouse pallets of frozen wings from Nordic Cold Storage in Lawrenceville, WSB-TV reported today. The two allegedly pulled the heist in the middle of the day. Jackson reportedly used a forklift to load the wings while Patterson acted as a lookout. They were arrested on Wednesday and charged with one count of felony theft, AJC reports. They were later released on $2,950 bond. The wings, however, were never found. It’s a theft most fowl because wings are expected to reach record prices during the Super Bowl this year. Chicken farmers argue that feed prices are growing following a higher demand for wings in restaurants, leaving football fans bracing for a shortage.
The perfect crime. Steal $65,000 in chicken wings right before the Super Bowl, the moment when they reach their highest price of the year, then sell them for all profit. Diabolical. I’m going to use this blueprint, hijack a freighter full of avacados this week, so if you want any guacamole at your Super Bowl party you better come find Sportsmasher. Bring cash. Small, unmarked bills.
