Yesterday, Channel 8 reported several local musos got their equipment stolen. Musicians Sammy Fox, Band McGraw, and Heather Elles told the TV news reporter they’ve  collectively had $50,000 worth of gear taken from their homes and locked trailers.

“The musicians suspect it part of a larger trend they’ve noticed in the metropolitan area, where people case local performers, follow them home, and then strike when the equipment is secured but left alone,” the report said.

A couple of years ago, Fort Worth Weekly reported a similar spate of robberies, in which Ryan McBride, Luke Wade, Apache Five, and a others all had their gear stolen.

Anyone with information should contact the authorities.  Musicians should be warned, since it looks like they are being targeted.
