The guitars were reported stolen on Thursday and Petty and his people put out their own all-points bulletins throughout the social networks including pictures of the instruments and a $7,500 “no questions asked” reward.

On Tuesday, police in Southern California reported that they had arrested Daryl Washington, a security guard at the studio where the band was rehearsing, and booked him for the alleged theft. According to the police, the case broke when they received a report that one of the guitars had been sold to a pawn shop.

Petty took to his Facebook page Tuesday evening to say “I am extremely grateful to the Culver City Police Department for a job well done and touched by the outpouring of good wishes and concern from our fans and friends.”

The band’s tour starts tomorrow (Wednesday) in Broomfield, CO.
