Al­legedly stuffed chicken down pants

Ottawa Sun - - NEWS - — The Cana­dian Press

Po­lice are hunt­ing for a man, shown in a hand­out photo, who put a stolen chicken down his pants in New­found­land.

ST. JOHN’S, N.L. — Po­lice are hunt­ing for a man they say put a stolen chicken down his pants in New­found­land.

The Royal New­found­land Con­stab­u­lary says the man al­legedly took the chicken from a Sobeys gro­cery store in St. John’s and then as­saulted a se­cu­rity guard who con­fronted him.

The force says in a Face­book post he “flew the coop” be­fore of­fi­cers ar­rived on July 7.

They say they tried to iden­tify the man with­out go­ing to so­cial me­dia, but are now re­leas­ing a photo.

The photo shows a man in blue T-shirt and jeans, tat­toos on both arms and sun­glasses propped on his fore­head.

They ask res­i­dents who may know him to call po­lice or Crime Stop­pers.

“We prom­ise we aren’t mak­ing it up,” the RNC says on Face­book.
