After a midtown coffeehouse asked Sacramentans to be on the lookout after a large wooden sign was stolen from the store, the sign was recovered within two days.
Local coffee roaster Old Soul Co. posted photos to Instagram and Facebook on Friday showing a white Porsche convertible with vanity plates carrying the store’s sign in the back seat.
By Saturday morning, the Facebook post was updated: “Thank you Sacramento. The Community, the Neighborhood, our City officials and public servants. Property returned.”
The sign was stolen from Old Soul’s Weatherstone location, on 21st Street near H Street, sometime on Thursday.

“An alert customer got a pic of the act. Any info would be appreciated if you know this car,” Old Soul had initially written Friday on Instagram, tagging the post “#loser” and notifying other coffeehouses in the area.
