Lisa Barrios, owner of Paint and Play was stunned to find her business torn through early last Sunday by an individual seen on this surveillance tape screen shot.
The suspect stole jewelry, fine art and photography from a recent exhibition of California Photographers’ work and destroyed years of paperwork related to the business. The suspect, wearing a backwards baseball cap, allegedly tore through the business grabbing items of value and destroying much of the infrastructure that makes Paint n Play such a fun place for kids and adults alike.
The curator of a recent exhibit, KABC cameraman Stephen Coleman lost a beautiful framed image of Griffith Park Observatory and the LA that was hanging proudly in the front of the store. Barrios is currently taking inventory of her losses and a full investigation is ongoing with Monrovia PD.
