A thief pawns guitar worth $250,000 for a mere $250 and …. gets caught It was a heartbreaker for Tom Petty and the band when someone stole five of their precious guitars from a soundstage. Collectively, the five guitars were worth roughly $100,000.
It was music to the guitar owners’ ears when police in Southern California announced Tuesday that the instruments had been recovered and a security guard was under arrest. The man arrested is Daryl Emmette Washington, 51, of Los Angeles, a private security guard at The Culver Studios lot. The break in the case came when the suspect pawned one of the guitars at a Hollywood pawn shop for $250. 0
“Mr. Petty would have joined us, but he’s preparing for a concert in Denver,” said Pedersen, who described the stolen guitars as collectively worth $100,000.
