In 2018, now 59-year-old, Anne Leyden went to her medical appointment at Heritage Medical Center, and on the way out she cut a 36 x 24 canvas painting of Roy Orbison’s guitar from the wall and replaced it with a second painting. Employees captured a photo of her walking down the alley of the building with the stolen painting, valued at $200. Leyden was booked into custody this week on the outstanding warrant.
