Robert Heins and Gunnar Hess Quince restaurant, 15.Quince Grill and Cantina Former Quince managers collecting funds for unpaid Quince restaurant staff but mangers keeping funds for themselves Cottonwood Arizona
The Where's Vlad - Vladimer/Bladimer Costa Facebook page was started by former 15.Quince Grill and Cantina (a.k.a Quince) kitchen manager/chef Robert Heins and general manager Gunnar Hess supposedly to collect funds for the employees who were left with bounced pay checks and non-paid wages when Costa, owner of the Quince restaurant in Cottonwood, Arizona skipped town in mid-January 2014.

Sounds like both were okay with all of Costa's illegal and questionable doings until Costa ripped them off as well. I donated in the very beginning by clicking on the PayPal button on the Where's Vlad page as it stated it was the 15 Quince Employee Fund, but when I called PayPal I was told Gunnar Hess was the owner of the account,
