The trio that stole the Big Bird costume from the Adelaide Circus on Sesame Street are learning their destiny


The trio, which sadly stole and then returned an expensive Big Bird costume to Adelaide, have left prison.

26-year-old Cody Milne, 23-year-old Tasman Binder and 21-year-old Amelia Hurt snatched an outfit worth more than $ 137,000 from a circus performance on Sesame Street in Bonitan Park in April 2021.

However, with an unexpected turn, the suit was returned a few days later, and a note with an explanation was found in the bird’s beak.

“It was just difficult for us and we tried to lift our spirits,” the note reads.

“We had a great time with Mr. Byrd. He’s a great guy, and our friend had nothing to worry about.

“Sorry to be such a big bird (sic). Sincerely, Great Bird Bandits ”.

South Australian police said the return was discovered after two men fled the scene.

Each of the groups, which had previously pleaded guilty, was reportedly ordered to pay a two-year $ 500 bail, while Milne and Binder were also required to do community service.
