A teenager was arrested on Friday after a hot cooked chicken was found hidden down his pants at Countdown Supermarket in Blenheim, police say.
Constable Andrew Holdaway, of Blenheim, said the 17-year-old youth was arrested about 5pm for alleged shoplifting after he left the store when supermarket staff approached him.
He was held in custody and appeared in the Blenheim District Court on Saturday, Mr Holdaway said.
