Man Steals Chick-Fil-A Cow Costumes, Tries To Sell Them On Craigslist
When an undercover police officer showed up a San Bernardino apartment complex last week, he wasn't there for a big drug bust, or to crack a murder case. He was looking for not one, but two, 7-foot cow costumes.
The costumes were stolen from a Chick-Fil-A storage facility in Redlands earlier this year, The San Bernardino Sun reports.
Redlands police say the thief, 43-year-old Robert Michael Trytten, put them up for sale on Craigslist for $350 a pop. An undercover officer contacted Trytten and told him "would make the perfect his-and-hers costumes for him and his wife," according to a statement from the Redlands Police Department. He then arranged to meet Trytten at his apartment.
The costumes -- valued at $2,800 each -- were returned to the restaurant. Trytten is being held on suspicion of possessing stolen property at the Central Detention Center in San Bernardino.
