  NEW YORK (AP) - Authorities have charged a man with ripping off a Salvador Dali painting from a Manhattan gallery, only to return it in the mail.
     The suspect appeared in court on Tuesday following his arrest in the theft of a work titled "Cartel de Don Juan Tenorio."
     Prosecutors allege that he walked into the Upper East Side gallery one afternoon in June, put the painting in a shopping bag and walked out. 
     They say after security video images of the man were widely circulated, he anonymously mailed the piece back to the United States from Greece.
