ATLANTA, Jan. 29 (UPI) -- Georgia police said they arrested a pair of storage facility workers who allegedly stole $65,000 worth of frozen chicken wings.

Gwinnett County police said Renaldo Jackson and Dewayne Patterson, employees at Nordic Cold Storage in Atlanta, were arrested after the 26,000 pounds of frozen Tyson chicken wings were reported stolen from the facility, WGCL-TV, Atlanta, reported Tuesday.

WGCL said a woman who identified herself as Patterson's mother told reporters she does not believe the allegations against her son.

"He's a really law-abiding person," the woman said. "That's why I don't understand that at all."
