Man arrested for selling stolen Chick-fil-A costumes
How udderly awful: A California man was busted for selling stolen cow costumes from the fast food chain Chick-fil-A, reports KHOU. Two of Chick-fil-A’s iconic cow costumes went missing from a storage facility in Southern California, and officers found the costumes listed on Craigslist just before Halloween. The cows are an integral part of Chick-fil-A’s “Eat More Chikin” ad campaign. Robert Michael Trytten, 43, of Riverside, Calif. was selling the 7-foot-tall costumes for $350 each and marketing them as his-and-hers Hallowen costumes.
The undercover officer met Trytten to buy the costumes on Oct. 30, and arrested Trytten after he presented the costumes. The costumes are valued at a whopping $2,800 each. Police brought the costumes back to Chick-fil-A and Trytten was arrested for possession of stolen property. Bond was set at $275,000.
