Undated photo released by the Redlands, Calif., Police Department, shows an unknown person posing in a stolen cow costume in San Bernardino, Calif., for an ad that was seen by police on Craigslist.

Police have arrested a man who allegedly tried to sell two 7-foot cow costumes designed for fast-food chain Chick-fil-A online, the Associated Press reports.

Robert Michael Trytten, 43, allegedly posted the black-and-white getups on Craigslist on Oct. 30, asking for $350 a piece, according to Redlands, Calif. police. An undercover officer met up with the seller to buy the costumes “for Halloween,” and arrested him. Trytten is now being held on a $275,000 bail for “suspicion of possession of the stolen property.”

The costumes, which were actually worth $2,800 a piece, were returned to the restaurant. No word on whether any “Eat More Chickin” signs were returned with the costumes as well.
