A 42-year-old man was arrested Saturday night after he allegedly stole fried chicken and a piece of cheesecake at a Vons supermarket because he didn’t want to wait in a long line, police said.

Officers stopped Corey Young at Los Feliz and San Fernando roads after they found him fleeing the Vons, according to Glendale police.

Young, who police said is on probation armed-robbery, told officers he grew impatient while waiting to pay for his chicken and cheesecake, and decided to walk out of the store, police said. He left his backpack at the store after a struggle with loss prevention guards.

When Young was searched, $209 worth of baby formula, razors, bandage, shampoo and foot spray were found in his back pack, police said.
