Police: Chicken Stolen from Crock Pot

Crock PotArlington County Police responded to a bizarre reported burglary on Tuesday afternoon.

A resident on the 600 block of S. Carlin Springs Road told officers that someone stole a chicken from her crock pot as it was cooking. It happened sometime between 9:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., while the resident was away from the 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 bit of 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.

“We suspect fowl play,” Sternbeck quipped.
