Most burglars like to lay low after taking down a score.

But one man in Kansas City, Mo., was arrested after wearing his spoils in public -- a costume that looked like a bird suit -- waltzing into a pub next door, on wing night, police said.

The bizarre incident occurred when the man, whose identity has yet to be released, allegedly shattered the window of the Kansas City Costume Co. with a brick on Thursday night, and stole a heavy yellow fur cape and a vintage 1936 feathery hat, a store clerk told ABC News today.

“We heard someone breaking into the costume shop next door,” Chad Baber, general manager at the pub, The Cashew, told ABC News.

“The police came in a little bit, but couldn’t find the man,” Baber said.

About 10 minutes later, the man walked into the pub, with the two stolen pieces of costumes on.

“He just sat there and didn’t order any drinks,” Baber said. “Some people went up and took pictures with him.”

The police patrolling in that area got calls from the pub patrons, claiming that there was man in a “chicken suit,” according to Sgt. Kari Thompson at the Kansas City Police Department.

The man was apprehended at the pub and Thompson said he appeared to be under the influence of drugs, though the police couldn't confirm what type of drug it was.

“He kept screaming ‘I am not resisting arrest’ when police approached him,” Baber said, noting that he was later transported to the police car in a stretcher.

“He was taken to the emergency room for treatment after he was arrested,” Thompson said. “The physicians made sure his blood pressure and everything else was normal.”

The man has not been charged with burglary as the investigation is still ongoing.

Baber said Thursday night is wing night at the pub, but isn’t sure if the man dressed up for the occasion.
