The Castanets Gear Stolen

It feels like every week some poor indie band gets their gear stolen. I swear, if you're an indie band and you're touring and you play in San Diego, you can unload your shit at my house so it won't get stolen while you sleep. Anyway, this time it's especially lame because it seems SD faves The Castanets and Jana Hunter are the latest victims. This is from Ray Raposa of the Castanets:
So, the story is, last night we played in tucson at solar culture. afterward, we loaded our stuff up, went downtown, had a drink, and went to a house to crash on the floor. en route, we damaged a door, making it such that the door won't close and such that eventually, before we return the vehicle to the rental company, we'll have to pay on the order of 2 grand to replace the door.

seeing as how we had an unsecured vehicle, ray (castanets) slept in the van. sometime during the night, some brave fuck(s) very quietly opened the back door and took what they could carry. we assume their were more than one of them given all the shit they managed to walk away with. we're gathering what serial numbers we can, but in the meantime, here's a rudimentary list:
JH gear-
fender classical guitar (ser.#9505151116)
new boss 20xl loopstation
boss reverb/delay pedal
original digitech whammy pedal
original b k butler tubedriver overdrive pedal
peavey 6 mixer (ser.#k0344300)

Castanets gear-
late 60's blue fender music master guitar
line 6 delay pedal
