$40,000 worth of chicken wings were stolen.

A father-son duo were arrested in November in Syracuse for selling more than $40,000 worth of stolen chicken wings, authorities said.

Paul and Joshua Rojek billed around $41,000 of chicken-wing orders to the Twin Trees Two restaurant, where they worked as cooks, between February and November, the Onondaga County Sheriff's Office said, according to Syracuse.com.

The two worked at the restaurant as cooks, Seeber told the news site.

The story gained broader attention on Syracuse.com Tuesday.

The pair resold the ordered wings on the street or to local establishments for a reduced price and would destroy or withhold the sales receipts, Jon Seeber of the sheriff's office spokesman told Syracuse.com.

The father-son duo face charges for grand larceny in the third degree and falsifying business records in the first degree, authorities said.
