FORT PIERCE, Fla. -- An employee of a Fort Pierce Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant called police Sunday night to report the theft of a chicken breast from the buffet line.
At around 4:25 p.m., the assistant manager of the KFC said he spoke with a customer, described as a middle-aged man, about a specific menu item that their store did not sell.
The man proceeded to linger around the buffet line and began to use his cell phone while other restaurant-goers continued to pick up their food, according to an incident report.
Minutes later, the employee said he witnessed the man grab a piece of chicken, possibly a breast, and exit the store in a red Ford pick-up truck.
The manager wrote down the license tag number and called police.
The worker told police he is concerned that a chicken breast thief will strike again at another KFC buffet.
Police found no cause for arrest at this time.
The chicken breast was worth $2.99, according to the report.
