Chicken Run: Police Stop Pair Near Auckland in Car Filled With KFC and Cash

Police in New Zealand arrested two people they said were “gang associates” on September 19 as they tried to enter Auckland in a car full of KFC and AU$100,000 in cash.

The men attempted to evade police when officers spotted their vehicle on a gravel road near Auckland’s southern border, travelling from Hamilton.

Officers eventually pulled the car over. Upon searching the car, they found empty ounce bags along with the cash and a large amount of Kentucky Fried Chicken in the trunk.

Both men were to appear in court for breaching a health order, police said, with further charges “likely.” Credit: New Zealand Police via Storyful
