Two Men Arrested in New Zealand for Smuggling KFC into COVID Locked-Down Auckland


Two men were arrested by police in New Zealand this week for allegedly attempting to smuggle a large order of Kentucky Fried Chicken into the city of Auckland, a town that has banned fast-food take-out as part of their strict COVID lockdown orders.

“Police said they found them with a car boot-full of Kentucky fried chicken and over $100,000 in cash as they tried to cross the border into Auckland despite New Zealand’s strict Covid-19 lockdown,” reports The Guardian.

“The men were arrested after allegedly trying to flee from police near the Auckland border. When their car was searched, police said they found a large quantity of KFC, as well as the cash and a number of empty ounce bags,” adds the British newspaper.

The arrest sparked an uproar from some residents in Auckland that have been unable to order food from their favorite restaurants for more than a month.

Images released by the police show three buckets of chicken, 10 “tubs” of coleslaw, and an undetermined amount of French fries.

If found guilty, the pair could face up to six months in prison and a fine of $4,000.

    Who better to go to to get your KFC fix than the local drug dealer. They already have the network. This is just a new product line. Who knows, maybe they can even score with some of their regular products at the same time.

    This is hilarious. So if anyone, probably not most of this audience, is aware, you don’t just innocently have $100k in the boot of your car because you like to stop at Garage Sales. So the police took the KFC, which sure, was bought and being trafficked, but they put that on the hood to be FUNNY. It’s called humor. Of course, people probably didn’t find it funny and most people can’t read and can’t focus so they read that people were arrested with KFC and see a picture, they think it’s because of the damn chicken… I know this, because I did for a quick second. But really, we have to consider possibilities here and look at all the facts. What if $50k of that money was for a grand-daughter of the Kernal himself, and the other $50k is just what the drug lord child trafficker has regularly on him for gunz and stuff? Ever think of that? Maybe they stole the recipe from her mind using a device Elon Musk created, sold to the Chinese and then hit the black market? They may have been just delivering the final product to the ‘Big Man’ and got intercepted on the way? Or maybe, they were just on another illicit fast food delivery stop and had been collecting absorbent amounts of money all night long? I had a feeling they didn’t involve three letter agencies like the FBI or the CIA to investigate a KFC trafficking business. Those police have good humor.

    How about we all go after the Davos group instead of innocent citizens?

    Time to whip out the legal defense that KFC isn’t really chicken and therefore not really food. Isn’t that why they changed the name from “Kentucky Fried Chicken” to “KFC”?

      You’re right, I have an insider who told me it was called ‘Species 39’ (and that was 15 years ago) and that it wasn’t the same as the chickens we see on the cast vlogs.

    This is the greatest absurd bullshittery so far in lefty lockdownland. The PM will probably make everybody turn in their chicken now.

  9. LG54 says:

    The hilarity of the headline, considering the amount of cash also involved. On point.

    I saw this image randomly earlier, thought is was a joke…
