NEW JERSEY (OCN) — A burglar who is also a former employee of a meat factory did the unthinkable. Police say he chops off his left hand.
“I can’t believe he did it” say Detective Mark Hamilton. “I have never seen anything like this in my 20 years on the force.”
Reports are that Brian Price (who is a former employee of Chicken Critters) broke into the warehouse where he was fired from just three months for excessive lateness. When police investigated they discovered Price’s prints on the scene which should no longer be there due to remodeling of the plant.
“We had him red-handed” says Det. Hamilton “and he knew it too.” While at Price’s home attempting to make an arrest, Price chopped of his left hand off and sent it down the garbage disposal in hopes no prints could link him to the robbery.
