Stolen Gear alert update – Erin and Jeff Nolan’s guitars recovered
In January, we posted a stolen gear alert here after we learned that some scumbag broke into the home of local musicians Erin and Jeff Nolan and stole three of their prized guitars (See: “People who steal from artists have no souls.”).
This week (against all odds), the Nolans and their guitars were reunited. Seems they were stolen by – get this – a next-door neighbor. According to Jeff Nolan, a Full Sail student bought one of the basses from a thrift store in Lockhart and contacted Kaleigh Baker, who plays with the Nolans in the band NEM. The thrift store discovery led to neighbor Craig Lee Owens, who had the rest of the guitars stashed in his house. Orlando Police arrested Owens in connection with the theft.
