Each cow suit carried a $2,800 price tag—or approximately 933 Chick-fil-A sandwiches. With pickles.
Craigslist isn’t just a place for scams, naked keyboard salesmen, and unwanted children. If you poke around long enough, you may be able to find cow costumes that cost thousands of dollars and appear strangely familiar—like they belong to a national chicken chain.
Robert Michael Trytten, of Riverside, Calif., allegedly stole two full-size, seven-foot cow costumes from a Chick-fil-A storage facility in Redwoods, Calif., just outside San Bernardino. The costumes are occasionally worn by employees during in-store promotional events, and they’re worth serious money. According to LAist, each cow suit carries a $2,800 price tag—or approximately 933 Chick-fil-A sandwiches. With pickles.
Trytten, unaware of this fact, was selling them for $350 apiece on Craigslist, complete with photos.
An undercover officer who spotted the listing posed as an interested buyer, telling Trytten the outfits “would make the perfect his-and-hers costumes for him and his wife.” The sting operation worked. Not only does Trytten face a possession-of-stolen-property charge, but he probably won’t be eating “mor chikin” anytime soon.
