An employee accused of stealing $10,000-worth of chicken wings from a meat and poultry company in Connecticut has been arrested.
The owner of County Distributors - located in the town of South Windsor - reviewed surveillance footage from his warehouse and noted that an employee, identified as Boris Delisser, had taken products from the warehouse and loaded them into a vehicle, according to police.
The complaint was filed in February 2012, according to police, and the investigation determined that Delisser had done this on several occasions. The total loss is estimated in excess of $10,000 worth of chicken wings and meat.

This chicken wing theft is the latest in a spate of food heists that took place in recent months. An Illinois man was arrested in March for stealing 21 tons of cheese from Wisconsin, while a Pennsylvania man was charged for pilfering and drining $100,000-worth of whiskey that belonged to his boss.
Police obtained a warrant charging 43-year-old Delisser with larceny in the first degree, which was served on Tuesday.
He was released on a $10,000 surety bond and is scheduled to appear at Manchester Superior Court on May 2.
