JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Police in Mississippi are investigating a break-in at a fast food restaurant where frozen chicken was taken.

Jackson Police Cmdr. Tyree Jones tells WJTV (http://bit.ly/28Ko9my ) that witnesses told police they saw a man enter a Church's Chicken just before 5 a.m. Tuesday, steal three boxes of frozen chicken and ride off on his bike.

Jones says police caught up with 67-year-old Cliff Hayes several blocks away.

The Clarion-Ledger reports (http://on.thec-l.com/28LgNz5 ) Hayes was charged with business burglary. Several boxes of frozen chicken were recovered and returned.

It was not immediately clear whether Hayes has an attorney to comment on his behalf.
