Renaldo Jackson and Dewayne Patterson have been arrested by police after allegedly stealing $65,000 worth of chicken wings from a storage facility in Atlanta, Georgia. It is not known if they planned to sell or eat the wings.
The incident took place on Jan. 12 when the two hungry thieves used a truck to steal 10 full pallets of chicken wings from Nordic Cold Storage, whose business, as their name suggests, is to keep food frozen for various businesses.
According to the local reporting of wsbtv.com 1% fewer chickens were raised in 2012 than in 2011, causing the price of chicken wings to increase. The reason for the shortened supply of wings is due to the extreme weather of 2012, which brought worldwide low corn yields, the main staple in the diet of a chicken.
Jackson and Patterson are currently being held in Gwinnet County Jail. It is not known if they will be served chicken wings on Sunday evening.
