Local Music Store Robbed

On October 30, BackBeat Music at 102 N. Chadbourne Street, was robbed.

Items stolen include a Stratocaster guitar that was not on the sales floor, various other instruments, computers, hard drives and the money from the register which is estimated to be between $300 and $400.

However, it appears that other items that were also valuable were not stolen, which seems unusual.

It appeared as though the thieves entered throught the skylight, then proceeded to load the stolen property into a truck and exit through the backdoor.

Business owner, Alex Cunningham, came into the building to discover that the skylight had been broken and the back door left open.

The skylight is not visible from outside of the store and it has been suggested that this act may have been planned by someone who has visited the store durinig business hours.

A police report has been filed and the owner is offering a reward for any information about who the thief or thieves may be.
