    ALAMEDA, Calif. —
    An old painting that vanished from an Alameda restaurant made its way home in less than 24 hours, and its owners credit a caring community, and the power of social media.<snip>

    "Yes, he just walked by, saw it, took it, and left," declared Guzman, "it's easy, and its just paint, but sometimes that has meaning too."
    Security video of the hallway revealed the heist: a customer strolling toward the restrooms plucked the picture off the wall and kept walking out the back door of the restaurant.
    "We were ready to go, we were ready to go find who had this painting and get it back," exclaimed Hernandez.
    But instead of a police report, the surveillance video and freeze-frame of the thief went up on La Penca Azul's Facebook page, and was instantly circulated. In one day, it received more than 46,000 views, including the young man's family who recognized him.
    Before the dinner rush Friday, they had him back at the restaurant, with the painting and an apology. more at link:http://www.ktvu.com/news/news/restaurant-owners-thank-facebook-community-bringin/ngjdY/
