A career criminal has been sentenced to nearly three decades in prison for stealing a semi-truck and frozen chicken breasts from Wendy’s.
In May 2012, police pulled over 51-year-old Felix Hall at Brooks Road and South Third in a maroon 2005 Freightliner Columbia. The semi had been reported stolen a week earlier.
According to the Shelby County District Attorney General’s office, police found a large pair of bolt cutters, a cut lock, and a cardboard box of frozen chicken breasts from Wendy’s inside the truck’s cab. During trial, it was revealed that the chicken was stolen from a Wendy’s restaurant located at 4320 Elvis Presley.
This week, Hall was sentenced to 15 years in prison for theft over $10,000 as a persistent offender. He received an additional 12 years for burglary of a building as a career offender and 11 months and 29 days for theft under $500. Hall will serve the prison sentences concurrently.
