    New Zealand police arrest pair trying to enter Auckland with ‘large amount’ of KFC

    Two men tried to reach city – where restrictions banned takeaways – with $100,000, three buckets of chicken and an undisclosed quantity of fries, police say
    Two men have been arrested after police said they found them with a car boot-full of Kentucky fried chicken and over $100,000 in cash as they tried to cross the border into Auckland despite New Zealand’s strict Covid-19 lockdown.
    The men were arrested after allegedly trying to flee from police near the Auckland border. When their car was searched, police said they found a large quantity of KFC, as well as the cash and a number of empty ounce bags.
    The arrest struck a chord with New Zealanders – especially Aucklanders, who have spent a month in a strict level four lockdown that does not allow restaurants to open or residents to order takeaway food.

    In such an environment, fast food can take on the aura of a high-value illicit substance. Last week, a man was charged by police after posting a social media video of crossing the Auckland boundary in search of McDonald’s.
    After the KFC arrest, a police spokesperson said “officers noticed a suspicious looking vehicle travelling on a gravel road, and upon seeing the police car, the vehicle did a U-turn and sped off trying to evade police.
    “The vehicle was searched and police located the cash, alongside empty ounce bags and a large amount of takeaways.”
    Close examination of the police evidence photos revealed at least three buckets of chicken, up to 10 tubs of coleslaw, and an undisclosed quantity of fries.

    Jesus - when too much seriousness breaks out NZ has come to the rescue. Feel for them, but in the UK we are running out of certain fast food comestibles like McDs milkshakes - now that is serious

    But what happens when we run out of baps, KFC coating and McDs sauce....catastrophic, dark days ahead i tell you. They'll not be enough takeaways served to ensure the countryside is maintained with a liberal sprinkling of discarded bags, cartons, straws and coffee cups.

    The black market price for this?



    It turns out they were gang members and in true Kiwi style they:
    were summonsed to appear in court at a later date for breaching the health order and further charges are likely.
    100k in cash and drugs . . . best let them go and tell them they need to come to court another time

    In an unrelated story, and unusual large number of New Zealand policemen from a specific precinct, failed to pass their physical as they had gained to much weight and had high levels of cholesterol.
    Authorities are investigating the cause are baffled.

    I suppose we can overlook the drugs, but smuggling that amount of KFC is unforgivable.
