Lorain police advise resident against overnight frozen chicken sales

LORAIN – The attempted early morning frozen chicken sale may have just been a front.

A woman called police around 7:30 a.m. Friday after she woke up to find a green lunch bag with her social security card and credit cards missing from her unlocked car.

The woman told police the bag went missing after a suspicious incident earlier that morning when her neighbor knocked on her door around 1 a.m. and tried to sell her frozen chicken. The woman told her neighbor to leave and went back to sleep, according to the report.

After her bag was missing from her car the next morning, the woman confronted her neighbor who denied knowing anything about the theft, according to police.

Unable to find any evidence pointing to the woman’s neighbor as the thief, police warned the neighbor that selling chicken door-to-door at 1 a.m. is “not the best idea,” and filed a report.
