Police investigating theft of musical instruments
Police are asking for the public’s assistance in locating two guitars and violin that were stolen during a residential break and enter earlier this month in Halifax.
On August 16 officers responded to a break and enter in to a residence on Andrews Street that had occurred sometime between the night of August 15 and the morning of August 16. The following three musical instruments and their cases were stolen:
- Ernie Ball Music Man 7-string electric guitar, matte white with a GoPro mount on the neck near the tuners. Stored in a black case.
- Ibenez 6-string electric guitar, purple, “Ilnas” written in black marker on the tuners. Stored in a black case with skateboard stickers pasted all over it.
- Yamaha 5-string violin, mostly black with wood grain showing through on the neck. Stored in a black case.
Over and above the monetary value of the items, these instruments are of sentimental value to the owner.
