Bozeman MT: Stolen Pickle Barrel Sign-Two ‘Campadres’ Return the Evidence 20 Years Later

BOZEMAN, Mont. — It’s not a typical day for the Pickle Barrel, one of Bozeman’s favorite sandwich shops.

The original store sign stolen nearly 20 years ago is back at the shop with a note from the culprits.

This story is making its way around town quickly.

“Oh, we saw the story and thought it was really funny, just a classic Bozeman move,” chuckled former MSU student Christy Maharg. “Going to college here, you know people do that stuff all the time, so it made us laugh.”

In 2002, four now middle-aged men were out on the town late at night.

Knowing Pickle Barrel’s fame around town, they decided it would be funny to take the store’s sign. As a result, they succeeded in what they deemed in their letter as ‘one of the greatest heists in the history of the town.’

Initially, the group planned to keep the sign for one year, but on a Monday morning two decades later, the sign made its way home.

“Pickle Barrel is referred to as an institution of Bozeman,” said the owner of Pickle Barrel’s Bozeman location Jenny O’Brien. “Through the years, I’m sure whoever did take it has been talking about it, and now I am sure to see how it has blown up all over has got to be fun for them too.”

If you are thinking about being the next Pickle Barrel sign thief, don’t get your hopes up. The store sign now has locks on it, preventing anyone from taking it like in years past, but to the ‘middle-aged dudes who made a drunken mistake a long time ago,’ O’Brien has a message for you about your note.
