Syracuse, NY: Father, son stole $41,000 worth of Chicken Wings from employer
Authorities say a father and son stole more than $40,000 worth of chicken wings from a New York 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 33-year-old Joshua Rojek, both of Syracuse, were caught stealing wings from the Twin Trees Too Restaurant in Syracuse. Deputies say both men were employed as cooks when they placed numerous chicken wing orders with the restaurant's wholesaler. Officials say the Rojeks would later pick up the orders and resell them at a reduced price. Deputies say the men billed about $41,000 worth of wing orders to the restaurant's account between last February and Nov. 21.

Omaha, NE: Sam's Club employee arrested for skimming $31,000 from deposits
A 54-year-old woman has been arrested on suspicion of stealing more than $31,000 from a north Lincoln Sam's Club. Officer Katie Flood says police believe the woman, who worked in the accounting department, took the money from night deposits from the store between Jan. 1 and Sunday, when she was arrested. Flood says staff at Sam's Club's corporate office noticed discrepancies in business accounts before further investigation pointed to the employee and surveillance video captured the woman taking money on numerous occasions. The Lincoln Journal Star reports that a store security employee called police to report the alleged embezzlement Sunday. Flood says it's possible that the loss amount is larger since an audit hasn't been completed.
