Thieves Steal Jewelry From Gallery, Leave Their Info in Guest Book, Cops Say
Two jewelry thieves thought they were smart leaving their info in the guest book of a gallery after they stole $6,000 worth of items.
A man and a woman stole jewelry from a Florida art gallery after leaving their name and number in the guest book, cops say.
Megan O'Hara, 24, and David Ziskoski, 19, allegedly took a bracelet and ring belonging to the owner and artist of the Atilla JK Exhibition at the ICFA Gallery in Palm Beach, Florida. The items are valued at around $6,000 combined.
When they were confronted, the woman had the items in her purse, police said. She allegedly gave the officers the stolen jewelry and they were both arrested.
When officers returned to the gallery, they said that the artist had noticed someone had put in multiple fake email entries in the guestbook, including the email address firstname.lastname@example.org, according to the police report.
One of the other names included “Meg” and featured O'Hara’s phone number next to it.
Ziskoski later allegedly admitted that it was he and Ohara who put the fake entries in the guest book. They also allegedly admitted to taking the jewelry again when they were in the county jail.
According to the police report, O'Hara said: “If I knew that they cost that much, I wouldn't have taken it.”
They duo were charged with grand theft and released from jail later that day.
