Skateboarding KFC thieves wanted after alleged Queenstown drive-thru dash

Two Queenstown skateboarders who allegedly skipped the queue for a feed of fried chicken are being sought by NZ Police.

On a day when many New Zealanders were prepared to wait in line for their first taste of post-lockdown takeaways, the impatient pair allegedly did not wait, nor pay.

Senior Sergeant Glenn Wilkinson said a person was sitting in their car about 8.30pm yesterday, waiting for the $90 worth of KFC they ordered.

"As soon as the order was placed on the window, a couple of teenagers have scampered up between the car and window and snaffled it," he said.

They were carrying skateboards at the time and headed towards the rugby grounds, he said.

The male pair were yet to be identified, but police would be reviewing security camera footage today.

It was a rare crime in the resort in recent days, with police spending more time talking to drivers and people at parks about alert level 3 and 4 rules, Senior Sergeant Wilkinson said.

On Monday a man was issued with an infringement notice for breaking COVID-19 rules after paddleboarding across Lake Wakatipu.
