St. Petersburg Police ask for help identifying chicken thief (w/video)

Published Apr. 6, 2015

ST. PETERSBURG — It goes down exactly how a fast-food drive-through should — quickly, without hassle.

The thief slips through the window, hops to the floor, grabs a case of chicken, then slips right back out again, all in less than a minute.

Surveillance footage shows him entering the Church's Fried Chicken at 22nd Avenue and 34th Street S shortly before 4 a.m. Thursday. He wears a white cap and blue shirt, but his face is mostly obscured.

Police are asking for the public's help identifying him, and urged anyone with information to call a detective at (727) 893-4272.
