A local band, The Two-Bit Terribles, recently had their storage unit broken into and almost all their gear cleaned out. I'm friends with the bassist (also the bass player for Gay Black Republican, the greatest band name of all time), and their drummer is our former drummer, so we've got ties to the band. It's quite a devastating loss, obviously.
They've got access code logs, surveillance videos, and a **** load of fingerprint/assorted forensic evidence, so it shouldn't be long before they find out who took the stuff, but by then it might be too late to recover it.
It happens that I have an entire spare bass rig laying around that I don't need at all and have been trying to get rid of because it's just taking up space, so I'm going to lend that to Rich until he either gets his stuff back or is able to replace it. I couldn't even imagine what it's like to be cleaned out like that.
