Vandals Take Off to Chick-fil-A Drive-Thru


Taking a stolen car to a fast-food drive-thru isn’t exactly the stealthiest getaway. Instead of taking off from the scene of the crime, the group of vandals opted for take-out instead.

A group of three suspects were arrested after they stole a car and took it to a Chick-fil-A for an evening meal in East Point, Atlanta. The occupants had been on the prowl, breaking into multiple cars and stealing the items inside.

Authorities claim they say the gray Dodge Charger at Redwine Road and Princeton Lakes Parkway heading toward East Point at 7:13 p.m. East Point officers spotted the stolen vehicle waiting in the drive-thru line before alerting both Georgia State Patrol troopers and Atlanta police who responded to the scene.

The driver tried to speed away from the area but was hit by another car after a trooper blocked him in.

Inside the car, officers found three handguns with extended magazines, multiple boxes of ammo, marijuana and tools used to break into other vehicles. The Georgia State Patrol troopers made the arrests.

One of the arrested suspects gave the troopers a false name and had several felony warrants out of Whitfield County.
