We like chicken wings too, but this is ridiculous.

Authorities say a father and son stole more than $40,000 worth of chicken wings from the Syracuse restaurant where they worked and sold them on the street or to other businesses.

The Onondaga County Sheriff's Office says 56-year-old Paul Rojek and his son, 33-year-old Joshua Rojek, stole over $40,000 from the Twin Trees Too Restaurant in Syracuse.

Deputies say both the Syracuse men worked as cooks and would place the orders for the chicken wing orders with the Twin Trees' wholesaler. The Rojeks then allegedly picked up the orders and resold them at a cheaper price.

The Associated Press says deputies report the men billed about $41,000 worth of orders to the restaurant's account from February to November 21 of this year.

Both Paul and Joshua have been charged with grand larceny and falsifying business records.

They should have held out for Wing Wars at the Mid-Hudson Civic Center on Jan. 30: tons of delicious wings and no larceny charges.
