Elderly, suburban high school cafeteria workers may seem harmless . . . but some are capable of HIGH-STAKES AVIAN THIEVERY!
66-year-old Vera Liddell was the “food service director” at Harvey School District 152. But she was arrested, for stealing $1.5 MILLION worth of chicken wings.
She’d been working there for at least a decade, but during the pandemic, she started over-ordering chicken, and picking it up herself in a district cargo van. And the extra chicken was never brought back to the school.
Over the past couple of years she stole a LOT of chicken, and she ended up being caught because she overlooked one thing: She was ordering massive amounts of chicken wings . . . but the school never served WINGS to the students “because they contain bones.”
It’s unclear what Vera was actually doing with all those chicken wings. She’s currently being held on a $150,000 bond.
As far as I know, she did NOT have a food truck out front called “Vera’s Illicit Chicken” which would have been awesome.
