TEN YEARS...A

MOURNING THE

LOSS OF

SOMETHING

SPECIAL THAT A

BURGLAR STOLE

FROM HIM.

A PREMIUM

GUITAR.

A GIFT FROM HIS

DAD THAT HE

THOUGHT WAS

LONG GONE.

BUT WITH THE

HELP OF THE

INTERNET - AND

SANTA FE POLICE -

HIS SAD STORY

HAS SUDDENLY

CHANGED ITS

TUNE.

NEWS 13'S NANCY

MUSICIAN DONNY

TESSO PLAYS

WITH SOME

POPULAR NEW

MEXICO

MUSICIANS.

IT'S HOW HE

MAKES HIS

LIVING...

INCLUDING

WORKING AND

PERFORMING IN A

BAND WITH HIS

DAUGHTERS.

BUT ALONG WITH

HIS GIRLS.. HE

HAD ANOTHER

BABY... A 1975

FENDER BASS

GUITAR...GIVEN TO

HIM BY HIS DAD.

"that's me with it.. in

high school? yes ...in

high school...um

hum."

BUT IN 2001...

SOMEONE BROKE

INTO TESSO'S

HOME..AND

CLEANED IT OUT..

INCLUDING THAT

OLD FENDER.

"i think i probably

cried that day.. i threw

a fit."

TESSO FILLED

OUT A POLICE

REPORT..AND

NEVER THOUGHT

HE'D GET HIS BABY

BACK.

BUT LAST NIGHT..

HE WHILE

CHECKING OUT

CRAIGS LIST...BAM.

"the picture popped

up..and i said..no way

..this can't be."

SOMEONE WAS

SELLING THE OLD

FENDER.

TESSO STILL HAD

THE SERIAL

NUMBER OF HIS

STOLEN GUITAR...

FROM THE 11-

YEAR-OLD POLICE

REPORT.

THAT'S WHERE

SANTA FE POLICE

OFFICER JEFF

WORTH COMES IN.

HE CALLED THE

GUY ON CRAIGS

LIST..AND SAID HE

WANTED TO LOOK

AT THE OLD

FENDER.

THE SERIAL

NUMBERS...MATCH

ED.

"we deal with so many

things whether it's

guns..bicycles..

instruments that have

serial numbers.. and

people don't write

them down..i would

venture to say it's one

out of ten people that

write down their serial

number."

BUT BECAUSE

TESSO

DID...POLICE TOOK

THE GUITAR.

AND THIS

AFTERNOON...

MORE THAN TEN

YEARS AFTER IT

WAS STOLEN....

"without a doubt..

without a doubt..

without a doubt.

reunited and it feels so

good.'

"it's almost like a

dream come true. i

can't believe this is

happening..thank you

guys so much."

NOW POLICE ARE

INVESTIGATING..TR

YING TO FOLLOW

THE TRAIL AND

HOW IT ENDED UP

IN THE HANDS OF

THE GUY ON

CRAIGS LIST.

THEY SAY..HE MAY

BE A CRIME VICTIM

TOO ..NOT

KNOWING THAT HE

PURCHASED A

STOLEN GUITAR.

BACK TO YOU.

OK NANCY.

SANTA FE POLICE

HAVE TURNED THE

CASE OVER TO

APD BECAUSE THE

CRIME WAS

COMMITTED HERE.
