Pair of $10,000 Guitars Stolen from Store are Returned and Suspect is Arrested

A California woman suspected of stealing two $10,000 vintage guitars from an Orange store has been charged with four felonies, the Orange County district attorney’s office said Wednesday.

Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies arrested Anna Gabriela Reyes, 22, in San Pedro last week after the Orange Police Department identified her as a suspect in the theft. She has been charged with two counts of grand theft, one count of second-degree burglary and one count of receiving stolen property.
The two guitars she is accused of stealing — a red 1955 Gretsch Firebird and a 1968 Gibson Johnny Smith — have been returned to the store, Imperial Vintage Guitars, police said.

Reyes was identified with the help of surveillance video, the store’s social media followers and witnesses, the Orange Police Department said. Last month, Reyes faced two misdemeanor charges of possessing methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia, according to court records… Los Angeles Times
