Driver accused of abandoning chicken truck found

The Associated Press

NAMPA, Idaho (AP) Authorities in Idaho have found the driver thought to have abandoned a trailer containing 37,000 pounds of rotten chicken at a western Montana truck stop.

The Nampa Police Department says the Greater Idaho Fugitive Task Force in Meridian found 42-year-old Christopher Hall on Friday afternoon.

Police say the trailer might have been sitting at the Flying J Truck Stop west of Missoula for a month before it was discovered this week with rancid juices from the cargo dripping onto the pavement.

Hall apparently abandoned the load when his trucking company refused his demands for money before its delivery to Kent, Washington. He has not been charged with any crimes related to the abandoned trailer, but he was wanted for a parole violation.

The Nampa-based trucking company reported the trailer missing Aug. 27.
