An undercover security guard has revealed to Kyle and Jackie O the item that people are most likely to steal in a supermarket, and it's not the more expensive toiletry items you'd think people would try to pocket.
Calling into the Kyle & Jackie O Show on KIIS FM, the woman who works as an undercover loss prevention officer for a major supermarket chain had both Kyle and Jackie O guessing what grocery item was most often targeted, with both incorrectly making their predictions.
With Kyle initially guessing razor blades, and Jackie leaning towards shoplifters stealing tampons, the caller revealed it wasn't an everyday toiletry item — in fact, it was a barbecue chicken.
Things got more alarming when Jackie queried where the thieves were hiding the chicken when trying to get away without paying for it.
"Two of the ones that I stopped, [put the chicken] down their pants," the undercover guard admitted.
With Jackie left shocked, Kyle had an important follow-up question about what kind of pants the thieves would be wearing in order to try and discreetly smuggle a chook out.
"Trackies. Big trackies," the guard confirmed.
Coles barbecue chooks currently retail between $12-13 per hot barbecue chicken, with Woolworths also usually retailing at the $12 mark. Woolies recently slashed its prices down to $10.90 for a flash sale, with the special ending on August 29.
