(Scroll down for video) A restaurant owner is offering a unique reward for anyone who helps him identify a thief.

Chef and owner Jon Shook of the restaurant took to Instagram, where he posted a video of the wanted thief who stole a toothpick holder.

In the video, the man was seen entering the Son of a Gun restaurant on West Third Street in Los Angeles, California, and acted a bit suspicious.

A worker walked over to him and handed the man a menu. The suspect looked at the menu for a short time before grabbing the vintage toothpick holder and quickly walked out the door.

Shook is now offering 20 free fried chicken sandwiches to anyone who helps them identify the thief.

One person wrote a comment to Shook on Instagram, saying: “For 20 sandwiches, I’ll get you any toothpick holder you want.”

However, the stolen item cannot be replaced as this was no ordinary toothpick holder. Co-owner Vinny Dotolom got the heirloom from grandmother.
