(RNN) – Willie Nelson's missing armadillo has been found.

The theater manager for the Capitol Theater in Port Chester, NY, told the Associated Press that "Ol' Dillow" was returned to the theater unharmed.

After a live show at the Capitol Theater on Sept. 19, a woman sauntered around the stage as the crew took down equipment, meandered over to the stuffed armadillo, picked it up and exited stage right.

Surveillance video shows she even chats with a security guard as she walks away with Ol' Dillo behind her back.

The iconic singer thanked everyone on his Facebook page: "Ol' Dillo is on his way home! Thank you to all of our friends and family for helping track him down. Thank you Capital Theater for having an amazing staff and hunting down clues. Lesson of the week: Only cowards steal from another person, don't be a coward!"

Nelson does not plan to press charges.

Tom Bailey, the general manager for the theater, told the AP a different woman from the video returned the mascot in a box.

Texas Roadhouse even offered $1,000 gift card reward for information leading to the armadillo's return.

    A knock at a door in April of 2015 was a herald of death for 29-year-old Brittney Mills. She was pregnant with her second child, and after answering the door, was gunned down by the person outside. Her 8-year-old daughter heard the whole thing, but that would be the last anyone would hear of the shooter.
