Teen Steals 12-Pound Turkey Breast By Stuffing It Down His Pants

Sidling up to a deli counter and stuffing a 12-pound turkey breast down his elastic-waisted sweatpants must have seemed like a good idea at one point. So a Brooklyn teen gave it a try. However, the nature of elastic and the laws of physics intervened, and he ditched the turkey in the street after waddling out of the store.

The New York Post reports that this criminal mastermind wasn’t just noticed by store employees and fellow shoppers: his poultry heist was caught on surveillance tape.

The 12-pound turkey breast went back on the shelf. It was worth about $82.
