Frozen chicken chucker charged over NSW break-in bid

February 04, 2009 12:25pm

NEW South Wales police reckon they have seen it all after nabbing a man for allegedly trying to smash his way into a cafe using a frozen chicken.

But the man, who police say swiped the chook during an earlier break and enter at a butcher's shop, came off second best.

As far as tools of the crime trade go, it seems frozen chickens don't rate. The alleged thief was forced to call emergency services after he was injured using the chook and some rocks to try to get into the cafe in Macksville, in the state's north.

"Police will allege that the man smashed the shopfront window using a frozen chicken stolen from the butcher and a number of rocks,'' police said.

"In the process the man suffered a minor injury to his wrist.''

The 20-year-old was nabbed early today after he called authorities seeking help for his injury. He has been charged with break and enter offences and is due to face Kempsey Local Court later today.

It was a minor injury yet he "called the authorities for help"? What a twit (not that that's not immediately apparent).

I think the chicken man is not likely to win mastermind in a hurry.
