The problem with stealing a 10-foot rooster is keeping it in the truck

CHARLEROI, Pa. — Police have charged a southwestern Pennsylvania man with rustling a rooster — a 10-foot fiberglass statue of one, anyway — and were still looking for another man who allegedly helped him.

Thirty-year-old Brody Nichols, of Fallowfield Township, didn't immediately return a call Tuesday on charges including theft and fleeing police filed after the incident early Saturday in Charleroi.

Police believe Nichols and another man removed the statue from a yard next to Tim's Secret Treasures, an antique store.

Police gave chase when they saw Nichols and another man had stopped to adjust the bird, which was strapped into the back of a pickup about 3:25 a.m.

Nichols lost police when he turned onto a dirt road, but they recognized who he was by that time. The bird toppled out of the truck and was returned to its owner.
