Police urge musicians to keep expensive items out of sight
Police have urged people to keep expensive items out of sight after an electric guitar player had £1,500 worth of equipment stolen from his car.
Mr Pearson was only reunited with his gear after he spotted some of his possessions being sold on a trading website and contacted the police.
The incident has prompted Devon and Cornwall Police to urge people not to display valuable items, particularly in the run-up to the festive season.
"Christmas is fast approaching and shoppers will no doubt have presents in their vehicles," said DC Tobie Carter.
Speaking to the Express and Echo, Mr Pearson added that not having his Fender Telecaster and other equipment was "terrible", as he plays gigs every week.
The man responsible for the theft has since been jailed for the crime.Posted on 20 Nov 2009 10:51 to category : Instruments News
