With chicken wing prices on the rise, it looks like the tasty bird bits have become a hot commodity. Two Georgia men have been arrested and charged with making off with a massive amount of frozen wings from a cold storage facility.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the two men were both employed at the storage company when 10 pallets — $65,000 worth — of Tyson chicken wings went missing on Jan. 12. This was before the Atlanta Falcons were eliminated from the playoffs, so perhaps the men were hoping they could cash in if the hometown team made the Super Bowl? Police say the alleged thieves used a forklift to put their purloined party snacks into the back of a rented truck.

The whereabouts of the wings are unknown.

The men were arrested last week and charged with theft by taking. They have since been released on bond, and we’re just going to assume that police are tailing the men hoping the suspects will lead authorities to the secret wing stash.
