Someone walks off with 9 pieces of art in Wichita

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Wichita artist says he won’t press charges if thieves return nine pieces of art that were stolen from a gallery.

Josh Tripoli says someone stole the art right off the walls at Murillo Studios in Old Town. He said the work likely was wrapped in a tapestry and then taken out the door.

KWCH-TV reports (http://bit.ly/16sGHH8 ) the total loss is estimated at $2,500.

Tripoli says he will forgive and forget and press no charges if the work is returned. And he says he plans to start anchoring his art so it’s harder to steal.
