Police search for stolen inflatable rhino in St. Charles Co.

September 25th, 2012 in News

ST. PETERS, Mo. (AP) - Police in the St. Charles County town of St. Peters are searching for a stolen item that's hard to hide - a 25-foot-long, 12-foot-tall inflatable rhino.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/UPtwWD ) reports that the rhino was used as an advertisement to attract customers to Michael's Flooring Outlet and stood along Interstate 70. An employee discovered the rhino was missing Monday night.

The rhino is worth about $3,500, so stealing it would be a felony.
