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.
Chapman admitted to producing and possessing the fake currency and the firearm. He was arrested and booked into the local detention facility without bond.
Chapman is facing charges for his warrant, along with the counterfeit currency and firearm.
