Man hides counterfeit money in Zaxby’s chicken wing box in Florida

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — When you open a box of chicken wings from Zaxby’s the last thing you’d expect to find would be counterfeit money.

But on Wednesday, a 26-year-old man stashed the fake currency that he made in his Zaxby’s chicken wing box, according to the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office.

The department said a deputy was conducting a citizen contact with two men in their car in a Zaxby’s parking lot. While talking to them, he detected an odor of marijuana and discovered one of the men had an outstanding warrant from Desoto County for possessing a firearm as a convicted felon.

The deputy then detained Bryan Chapman and searched the vehicle.

That’s when he opened a chicken wing box and found it filled with counterfeit money, along with finding a firearm in a black trash bag.
