SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico—Which came first, the chicken or the eggs? For thieves in Puerto Rico this week, it was the eggs.

Days after police reported that thieves stole nearly half a million eggs from a north coast warehouse, authorities reported Saturday that someone stole 20,000 pounds (9,072 kilograms) of chicken.

The thieves made off with the poultry from a truck parked outside of a warehouse in the island’s central region.

Police said the chicken is worth $28,000. No one has been arrested.
