Leon Russell’s band has had a number of their instruments stolen from their bus while they slept just feet away.
The bus was parked in front of the Aztec Theatre in San Antonio on Sunday night with the band asleep on the vehicle. A security camera captured the image of a man with graying hair and goatee wearing a San Antonio Spurs jersey picking the lock on the storage compartment on the side of the bus and making off with three guitars and a mandolin.
The equipment was valued at about $3,000 and included a Stratocaster owned by guitarist Beau Charron. He told media that he had been playing the instrument for twenty years and had sentimental value as the first guitar he ever bought.
The show went on Sunday night with borrowed instruments in place of those taken.
