Two men were arrested last week and accused of stealing frozen chicken wings — worth $65,000 — from a local cold storage business where they worked in Doraville.
Dewayne Patterson, 35, and Renaldo Jackson, 26, were employees at Nordic Cold Storage off Pleasantdale Road in Doraville, according to a police incident report.
On Jan. 12 around midday, the two men allegedly backed up an Enterprise rental truck to a bay door at the business, and loaded the truck with 10 pallets of Tyson frozen chicken wings, according to the report.
Managers at the business told police that Jackson used a forklift to load the wings while Patterson served as lookout.
The men were arrested Wednesday and charged with one count of felony theft by taking. They were released the same day on $2,950 bond.
No word on the whereabouts of the wings, according to police.
