A Virginia man was arrested after allegedly stealing 26 gallons of milk from a Walmart while wearing a cow suit and crawling on all fours.

Sounds hilarious, right? Unfortunately, a spokesman for the Stafford County Sheriff felt otherwise.  “This is probably one of the most unique efforts of shoplifting I've seen. It might've been a prank that went wrong, but it isn't as funny when [the suspect] breaks the law,” he said.

The bovine bandit eluded store security and was seen outside the store pouring milk to passersby. The milky rampage ended when the 18-year-old was picked up at a local McDonald’s. Officials found the cow outfit in the suspect’s car.

Moral of the story: Never trust a man in a cow suit to look after your milk.
