Justice prevails in southern California. Police have located the five guitars stolen from Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers and have made an arrest.

Culver City police Lt. Ron Iizuka announced the arrest Tuesday, April 17. The name of the suspect and other details have not been released.

The instruments were reported stolen last week from The Culver Studios, a soundstage where the band was rehearsing for their upcoming tour.

The band had offered a “no questions asked” reward of $7,500 for information leading to their return.

The stolen guitars include Petty’s blond 1967 12-string Rickenbacker and his Gibson SGTVJunior, Mike Campbell‘s blue Dusenberg, Ron Blair‘s Fender Broadcaster and Scott Thurston‘s 1967 Epiphone Sheridan.
Tom Petty says, “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.”

Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers‘ 2012 Tour begins tomorrow night in Broomfield, CO at the 1st Bank Center.
