Most thieves would try to hide their loot, but it was impossible in this case. What were they thinking? Three men were arrested in Putnam County, Florida, for stealing a 9-foot-tall purple chicken.
The owner of the statue said he was getting ready for work Tuesday when he heard a commotion. He looked down the street and saw a pick up truck pulling his purple, 600-pound, aluminum chicken.
One of the men was mounted on the chicken, riding it down the road. They were identified through eyewitness accounts and video surveillance.
The chicken, which is valued at $2,300, sustained "a broken leg, broken claw and there was extensive damage to one side," according to the release.
