It's costume season, and someone in Sacramento treated themselves to an early trick: stealing the "Quackals" mascot costume for the Quick Quack Car Wash franchise.
The "duck suit" was taken from the mascot performer's white minivan, which was broken into at around 6 p.m. Saturday near Front and O streets, according to city police.
"This is a sad day for us. It's hard to believe that someone would steal our beloved duck. We are assuming that it was just a prank by someone desperate for a Halloween costume," said Quick Quack President Jason Johnson. "We have no desire to press charges if we can just get him back."
Quick Quack is asking anyone with information regarding "Quackals" to contact the company at 916-971-3274, firstname.lastname@example.org, or any Quick Quack location.
