The Portsmouth Hearld reports that the owner of Izzy's Frozen Yogurt & Ice Cream in Portsmouth says the sketch drawing of actor Paul Reubens was stolen on Friday evening.
Owner Beth Gilbert says the store was full of people when the theft occurred and that two female customers saw a man take the sketch off the wall and walk out. Workers ran after the man, but he got away.
Gilbert says she paid about $100 for the sketch of Reubens wearing an Izzy's T-shirt.
The spot on the wall where it hung is now bare as Gilbert hopes for the sketch's return.
