|Gail Johnson: Behold the face of a criminal mastermind... and great patron of the arts, of course|
One was framed picture of pears, which would look wicked in your living room if you happened to have a green couch. The other is only described as "metal wall art." It's apparently so deep and penetrating its essence can't be captured in the primitive cadence of a police report.
Surveillance cameras would later show one of the women removing the treasures from the wall and leaving the store. The other went on to order some roast beef and chemical cheese sandwiches before departing.
When Arby's noticed the magnificent works missing, it reviewed surveillance tape to catch the culprits. Detectives were then able to match their purchase receipts -- they apparently used a credit card -- to identify the villains.
Arby's claims the artwork was worth $1,200, which sounds like someone is trying to run a scam on their insurance claim. And even if it's true, do you really wanna admit you paid $1,200 for a picture of some friggin' pears? (Special thanks to reader Christal for the tip.)
