The police have had no response to a $25,000 reward from actor Jason Lee for a Polaroid photograph of late screen legend Dennis Hopper which was stolen from a Los Angeles art exhibit.
The My Name Is Earl star was hoping that the reward would make somebody come forward in the tough Highland Park neighborhood.
Lee – who is currently filming in Canada – was devastated to find-out that the touching 8-by-10 image had been stolen from the THIS Los Angeles exhibit called These Friends.
The Easy Rider and Blue Velvet star died, aged 74, on May 29, 2010, at his home in Venice after a long battle with prostate cancer.
A police source told RadarOnline.com: “As yet nobody has come forward with any information regarding the image of Dennis Hopper that was stolen on Saturday.”
The photograph – which Lee only loaned to the exhibit – was snatched by somebody who ran into the exhibit as the crowds had left and the space was being cleaned-up.
Lee’s publicist Nancy Iannios said: “Jason was very upset when he found out that the image was stolen from the exhibit.
“He put up the reward in the hope somebody would return it because as a photographer it means a lot to him.
“Obviously, we would be very grateful if somebody would contact the police and help us recover the photograph.”
