CULVER CITY, Calif. (AP) -- Culver City, Calif., police say they have arrested a suspect who tried to pawn a guitar stolen from Tom Petty.

Police Chief Don Pedersen said the break in the case came when the suspect pawned one of the guitars at a Hollywood pawn shop for $250.

Five guitars were stolen, worth a total of $100,000.

The instruments were reported stolen last Thursday from The Culver Studios, a sprawling complex of soundstages west of downtown Los Angeles where Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers had been rehearsing for an upcoming tour.

On its website, the band offered a "no questions asked" $7,500 reward for information leading to the return of the instruments.

Their return comes as the band prepared to kick off their tour Wednesday in Broomfield, Colo.
