INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — An Oklahoma artist whose U-Haul trailer filled with pottery was stolen Thursday received good news after police were able to locate the trailer with help from a viewer’s tip.
Crystal Hanna had driven all the way from Oklahoma to be juried at this weekend’s Eiteljorg Indian Art Market.
On Thursday, a trailer filled with her art was taken overnight from the parking lot of her hotel.
Police say it appears a viewer who saw her story called in a tip that led to the recovery of Hanna’s trailer and pottery.
Thankfully, Hanna was able to set up her booth at the Eiteljorg Indian Art Market after all.
