SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A San Francisco teen's stolen cello has been recovered after a mysterious person dropped it off in a Chinatown bar with instructions to call police.

The $8,500 cello was stolen April 11 from a San Francisco parking garage. Security cameras captured a woman stealing the instrument and other items from the 16-year-old girl's car. A man served as a getaway driver.

Police on Tuesday released photos of the thieves and asked for the public's help in locating the pair and cello. That night, a person walked into the bar in the city's popular tourist destination, gave an employee the cello and quickly left.

The police are still looking for the thieves.
