Arizona restaurant paints shameful picture on Facebook of thieves who stole painting

  • Print

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. - Two accomplices in the theft of a painting at a Flagstaff restaurant have come forward after a shaming campaign on Facebook.

The Arizona Daily Sun (http://bit.ly/UIyTeU) reported Tuesday that Tyler Christensen, the owner of McMillan Bar and Kitchen, went to social media instead of police after the painting went missing on June 9.

Christensen posted an open letter and surveillance photo of a man putting the painting in his backpack while the two accomplices acted as lookouts.

He says the two accomplices have since come forward and given $500 to cover the cost of the artwork.

Christensen's Facebook post has been shared more than 7,900 times and received more than 4,300 likes and nearly 770 comments.

The artwork, however, was last seen hanging from a tree.
