A Stolen Kentucky Fired Chicken Colonel Sanders logo that was stolen from a restaurant has been found hidden under the suspected thief’s bed

The chicken incident occurred over Christmas when thieves took down Sanders head and legged it down Colchester High Street.

However, officers kept abreast of the matter, and while searching a house for other items found the sign under a bed.

They said two men were “dealt with for their silly behaviour”.

Officers posted about their finger-lickin’ find on Facebook, using the hashtag “winner winner chicken dinner”.

A KFC spokesman said: “We’ve heard of some weird fetishes – but this is ridiculous. Under the bed?

“We’ll have to get him steam-cleaned now.”
