Help catch a thief.  Someone walked off with a guitar from Ottos’s Shrunken Head about 10 days ago, and the club is looking for your help.  Here’s what the club says:

Hi, all!

We are looking for a little help with finding out who this gentleman is in these photos.

Last Saturday, June 21st into Sunday morning June 22nd he was seen walking out with a guitar case that belonged to a band member that had played earlier that night. He was seen entering Otto’s around 11pm Saturday night & leaving with the guitar case a little after 1am. Please share & let us know any information you may have. Thank you.
