If your hat gets stolen, never fear, the LAPD is on the case. Just one month after having his signature top hat taken from his limo after The Grammys, Slash had his hat returned to him by the Los Angeles Police Department. The hat thief, however, is still on the loose.

LAist is left to wonder what one does with a stolen hat? Is there a black market for these kinds of things? Maybe the hat is like our friend the Echo Park Jamboree Bear and is another harbinger of the local trend of inanimate objects wanting to get free of the misery of their lives. Speaking of the Echo Park Jamboree Bear, it appears he has escaped.

So while we decide whether to mourn or celebrate the reunion of Top Hat to Guitarist, we can at least know that the fate of a teddy bear is no longer hanging, quite literally, by a thread.
