An Arizona resident will feast on a year's worth of free sandwiches from Chick-fil-A after the tipster helped police locate something valuable.

An Arizona resident will feast on a year’s worth of free sandwiches from Chick-fil-A after he (or she) helped police locate a stolen 24-foot-tall inflatable cow.

The cow — which weighs 350 pounds and holds a sign with the chain’s slogan “eat mor chikin” — was inflated and used by a Phoenix Chick-fil-A franchise at an Arizona State University football game earlier this month. After the game, the cow was deflated and stowed in a vehicle, from where it was reported stolen, Phoenix’s Fox 10 News reports.

The Chick-fil-A franchise owner was interviewed by Fox 10 News after the bovine theft.

“This is the only 24-foot inflatable cow in the state of Arizona, so we’re definitely down,” says Phil Thomas, who offered a free year of Chick-fil-A sandwiches to whoever could bring the beloved blow-up cow back to the restaurant.

Thomas’ tasty reward offer paid off. A tipster located the inflatable cow in a Phoenix-area backyard and called authorities.

According to Arizona’s ABC 15, when police confronted the homeowner about the cow, he said he bought it at a garage sale and thought it was a bouncy house.

The cow was returned to its rightful owner, a police investigation is underway, and one honest tipster will be gobbling up free Chick-fil-A sandwiches for an entire year.

What kind of punishment should the thief face for allegedly stealing the inflatable cow? Share your comments below or on our Facebook page.
