Police in Arlington, Virginia, responded to an unusual reported burglary on Tuesday afternoon.
A lady told officers that someone stole a chicken from her crock pot as it was cooking. It happened sometime between 9:00am and 1:30pm, while she was away from her apartment.
“She returned to find the chicken had been taken, and there were only vegetables remaining in the crock pot,” said Arlington County Police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck.
How the chicken was taken remains a mystery. There was no sign of forced entry and Sternbeck noted that there was no pet in the apartment that might have stolen the chicken for a meal.
