Jewelry, art stolen from Texas gallery left at church
LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) – About $3,000 worth of jewelry and art works stolen from a Lubbock gallery have been returned after the thief apparently had a change of heart and left the loot at a church.
Tornado Gallery owners Tony Greer and Larry Simmons were contacted Monday by a representative of Templo Nazaret United Methodist Church.
The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal reports two large boxes of items, discovered missing on Sept. 30, had been left at the church. An anonymous note accompanied the boxes, saying: “Please return these items to the Tornado Gallery.” The note included the gallery’s phone number.
Simmons says the return of the items renews his faith in humankind.
