DeKalb man allegedly stole Chick-fil-A van; but what about free food?

A Dunwoody man is accused of stealing a Chick-fil-A catering van that was found in Acworth.

George Christian Adamson was arrested Thursday and a day later was still in Bartow County jail with a $12,500 bond on two felony theft charges, records show.

But one mystery remains: Who, if anyone, will get free chicken for a year?

Travis Kuhn, executive director for the Cartersville Chick-fil-A, previously said he’d give 52 free meals to the person who helped the cops catch the chicken van criminal. The restaurant advertised the reward on its Facebook page.

An employee at the store said Kuhn wasn’t available Friday to say who might get the reward.

Cartersville police weren’t immediately able to say whether it was a tip that led them to the van.

But the cops added a note when they announced Adamson’s arrest on Facebook: “We know, in our hearts that all of the tips and leads that poured in had nothing to do with free chicken sandwiches for a year, rather a strong tie to the community and the need for justice. We don't know outcome of the reward yet, but when we do I see a new best friend in our future #welovechickensammies.”
