Painting of Full House's Joey stolen from restaurant, returned in trash bag
Big Al's, as seen in another photo from the restaurant's Facebook page.
The Fort Collins Coloradoan reported about the theft, which was actually observed by employees; they saw a young man staffers reportedly recognized grab the Joey likeness and sprint down the block.
A staffer interviewed in a Coloradoan video describes the crime as "confusing and wrong."
Dave Coulier as Joey in "Full House."
Now, fortunately, the Coloradoan has good news to report -- although the details are strange and/or modestly insulting.
Yesterday, employees received an anonymous call that the Joey painting had been left by a church, like a foundling child -- except that it was encased in a black garbage bag.
Is the thief suggesting that Joey is trashy? How dare he! But the painting has been recovered. The house is full again.
