More stolen equipment

I've noticed lately several bands posting that their shit has been stolen from shows, venues and hotels. The Spits equipment was stolen from their secured storage facility. Damone is only on tour still because the other bands are allowing them to borrow their equipment.

Here's the latest:

Sorry for the bad news on monday morning, but
our friends La Rocca had their gear AND their van stolen this morning in
Philadelphia. Here's a list of what's missing in case you have any info/help to
offer:CAR - WHITE DODGE RAM VANLicense 3VN W138INSTRUMENTS (most in cases and

you have any info, please shoot us a myspace msg and we'll pass it on.

If I remember correctly, this is the second time I've seen a posting about Philly. What the fuck, people? I wonder, is there a way of microchipping your gear? Or Lo-Jack for guitars? I don't know, but it seems like for as much money as people spend on equipment, it is worth protecting more than just insurance, because we know how fucked up insurance companies can be. The really lame thing is when you see all this equipment on sale on Craig's List or e-Bay. May the karma result in the thieves stuck in hell having to listen to Celine Dion on repeat for all eternity.
