OKLAHOMA CITY -- An Oklahoma City business owner is shaming thieves into doing the right thing. She's not calling police; instead she's posting videos of the crime all over the internet.

In the midst of chopping, dicing and serving fine Brazilian cuisine Ana Paixao Davis was robbed. Brazilian masks and artwork were taken right off the wall. She says her customers who she calls her extended family stole them and she has the video to prove it.

"Maybe you just had too much to drink and you just want to show off for your friends but please bring it back," Davis said.

Instead of going to the Oklahoma City Police, Ana is blasting the thieves using technology. You can see in surveillance video, the women are leaving Cafe Do Brasil with prized possessions from Davis' homeland in their hands.

She says the video is heartbreaking because the artwork was a gift from a deceased friend. Davis decided to get surveillance cameras a few months back after thieves stole a tapestry right off the wall. Since then she has been able to do some of her own detective work.

"Anyone that walks in here means something to me and I would hate to think that a special person took something from me," Davis said.

A special restaurant with a rich history, whose owner refuses to do things the regular way. She has a special request for especially bold thieves, "Return my things no questions asked."
