Men caught smuggling in car full of KFC items and cash

Two men in New Zealand were arrested while trying to enter locked-down Auckland with a car trunk full of KFC’s fried items.

Under Auckland’s Alert Level 4 lockdown measures, restaurants, including takeout services, have been closed and residents have been urged to stay indoors with only essential services open.

When the police officers were patrolling back roads near the city’s southern boundary, they noticed a suspicious-looking vehicle travelling on a gravel road.

According to the cops, the car sped over trying to evade the police.

Later when the car was pulled over, the vehicle was searched and police found a large amount of KFC takeaways in the trunk and huge amount of cash, over a whopping NZ$100,000.

The Guardian reported, “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.”

Reports state that the two men, aged 23 and 30, had travelled all the way from Hamilton, about 75 miles (121km) south of Auckland. The duo was summoned to appear in court at a later date for breaching the health order and further charges are likely.
