200168147-001A man dressed in a cow suit managed to rob a busy Stafford, Virginia Walmart of 26 gallons of milk on Tuesday night before being nabbed by the cops.
The local news story on the crime, by David Pierce at InsideNova.com, is an absolute must read. Apparently, the cow-suited criminal escaped the megastore by crawling out the doors, "trying to emulate cattle." He then began handing out the stolen jugs right outside the store before making his escape, in a sort of bovine interpretation of Robin Hood.
The man's apprehension by the police is by far the best part of the story:
Stafford County sheriffs said they went to a nearby McDonald's restaurant for a disturbance call, and the responding officer saw a man--not in a cow suit--there that seemed to match the culprit.
The suspect was taken back to the Walmart, and management confirmed he was the thief of the pasteurized potion.
The cow suit was found in the man's car, Kennedy said.
