Guido is Back

CEDARBURG, Wis. (WHBL) - Guido is back. The seven-foot costume of the famous Italian racing sausage was stolen from a festival in Cedarburg 12 days ago. Last night around eight, two men plopped the costume onto a barstool at T-J Ryan’s in Cedarburg. They then fled quickly, and bartender Jen Mahony called police.

The missing sausage attracted lots of publicity yesterday in southeast Wisconsin, where the characters make numerous public appearances when they’re not racing each other during the Milwaukee Brewers’ baseball games. Guido’s costume is owned by the Klement’s sausage company, and is worth $3,000.

Cedarburg Police said they took the matter seriously, they could not say if charges would be pursued if the thieves are found. Several food companies offered rewards yesterday for the return of Guido. Ryan Downs of G-L-K Foods in Appleton called the Racine Sausages a “statewide treasure.” And he said the theft could not go unpunished.
