Family bonding doesn’t only mean spending time with loved ones, it can also be stealing over $40,000 worth of chicken wings with your dad and selling them at a cheaper price. That’s what a father-son-cooking duo did before they got arrested.
A father and son were arrested for stealing more than $40,000 in chicken wings from a New York restaurant and selling them to competitors, authorities said.
Paul Rojek, 56, and his 33-year-old son were charged Monday with grand larceny and falsifying business records, the Onondaga County sheriff’s office said. The two from Syracuse are accused of taking the wings from the Twin Trees Too restaurant, where they both work as cooks.
Authorities say they placed numerous chicken wing orders to the restaurant’s wholesaler and later resold the poultry on the street or to other local eateries at a reduced price.
The father and son billed about $41,000 worth of chicken wings to Twin Trees from February to the end of November and allegedly destroyed the receipts, authorities said.
The two were arraigned Tuesday in Syracuse Criminal Court, where their bail was set at $2,500 cash or bond.
There must be shortage on fowl that we’re not aware of. Otherwise, why would these dudes risk their freedom for chicken? Seems too risky.
