FLAGSTAFF, AZ (AP) -

Two accomplices in a theft at a Flagstaff restaurant have come forward thanks to a shaming campaign on Facebook.

The Arizona Daily Sun reported Tuesday that the owner of McMillan Bar and Kitchen went to social media instead of police after a painting went missing June 9.

Tyler Christensen posted an open letter June 12, along with a surveillance photo of a man putting the painting in his backpack while two other men act as lookouts.

Christensen's Facebook post has been shared more than 7,900 times and received more than 4,300 likes and nearly 770 comments.

He says the two accomplices have since come forward and given $500 to cover the artwork.

Christensen says they informed him that the painting was last seen hanging from a tree.
