APD: Stolen Drum Set Discovered On Instagram
Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 04:08 PM CDT
Kenny Wagner can't pass up a good buy. So when his buddy stumbled upon a sweet drum set at a rock bottom price, Wagner pounced.
"He found a drum set at a yard sale. Asked if I was interested I said I was so I told him to buy the drum set," said Wagner.
Wagner's friend paid a woman $200 for the custom-made P.Ellis drum set. Cops claim it wasn't hers to sell.
"No one thinks you're going to a yard sale and property is stolen," said Senior Officer Vaneza Bremner.
According to an arrest affidavit, the drums -- valued at $3,700 -- were stolen from the owner's car back in February.
He contacted the drum company who posted a picture of the stolen goods with a public plea on Instagram.
"I went to see if they had an Instagram site and they did and the first picture that popped up was of the drum set and it had said it had been stolen from one of their artists," added Wagner.
Wagner contacted the drum company and the Austin Police Department.
"Once I found out it was stolen there was no way I could keep it," claimed Wagner.
Detectives arrested Shannon Stroble, charging her with theft by appropriation.
The owner got his drums back. Kenny made just one request.
"Don't ever leave your musical equipment in your car again," said Wagner.
Police say there are two things you should do to safeguard your prized possessions: take pictures and write down the serial numbers. That way if your stolen property is found you can prove it's yours.
