Two men have been arrested in connection to stealing $65,000 worth of frozen chicken wings in Gwinnett County, according to police.
Renaldo Jackson, of Tucker, and Dewayne Patterson, of Lithonia, were both employees of Nordic Cold Storage off Pleasantdale Road in nearby Doraville, where the chicken was reportedly taken from.
