Cow suit thief arrested in Craiglist sting

He must’ve known that the steaks were high.

THE SEEDY UNDERWORLD of the cow suit trade is nothing to be scoffed at.

Police in Southern California have busted a cattle costume rustler after he tried to sell the stolen suits online.

Redlands police say the two 7-foot cow costumes created for the Chick-fil-A fastfood chain were nabbed in separate restaurant burglaries.

Here they are. Watch out, shapes being thrown.

The costumes turned up for sale for €258 apiece on Craigslist on October 30.

An undercover officer arranged to buy the bovine attire in time for Halloween. When the seller produced the black-and-white outfits, he was arrested.

43-year-old Robert Michael Trytten is being held for suspicion of possession of stolen property, with the costumes valued by the popular American chain at €2,068 apiece.

Police also recovered a pop-up canopy stolen from the restaurant, but all the property was eventually returned to Chick-fil-A.
