A $2,000 custom guitar stolen from Rascal Flatts during their performance at the Willamette Country Music Festival in Brownsville, Oregon, Friday night has been recovered, according to The Register-Guard.

Linn County sheriff’s deputies say that two suspects — a 19-year-old man and a 17-year-old female — were detained after the guitar was discovered stolen from backstage. The band decided not to press charges, as long as the guitar was returned unharmed.

The two suspects attended the concert, according to the deputies, who say a detective met the male suspect on Sunday and took possession of the guitar, which appeared undamaged.

Both suspects were cooperative when interviewed by deputies, and festival administration staff was instrumental in resolving the matter, according to officials.

Rascal Flatts’ Riot Tour picks up in Springfield, Illinois, on Wednesday.
