Orel Hershiser drawing stolen from Echo Park restaurant.

TheEastsiderLA.com has the downer of a story about an Orel Hershiser drawing that was stolen Sunday from Guisados restaurant on E. Cesar Chavez Ave. near Dodger Stadium:

The owners of Guisados restaurant in Echo Park have turned to Facebook and Twitter to find the thieves who ordered tacos and then ran off with an original drawing of Dodger pitching legend Orel Hershiser that hung in the restaurant dining room.

The 24-inch by 36-inch drawing on canvas created by the son of the restaurant owner was taken on Saturday afternoon by a trio of men dressed in Dodger shirts. After ordering tacos and entering the dining room,  the three men, described as noisy and possibly drunk, sat down in the dining room.  Then, in front of other patrons, one  of the men removed the drawing from the wall and ran out a side door and across Sunset Boulevard along with his two companions.

The Guisados Facebook page has the grainy video image here.
