SAMFA not pressing charges against painting thief

The San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts will not be pressing charges against the man who stole a painting valued at $9,000 from San Angelo City Hall late last month, SAPD said in a statement Thursday afternoon.

“The department does not release a suspect’s name if the investigation did not result in arrest,” Officer Tracy Gonzalez said in the statement.

The painting was recovered Wednesday and has been returned to the museum.
