During the evening of Sept. 18, Road Dogs Music Supply was broken into and close to $5,000 worth of musical equipment was stolen, owner Willow Gamberg told the News.
A GoFundMe page was set up to help Gamberg recoup the losses.
On Sept. 23, the Whitehorse RCMP issued a press release seeking public assistance in locating the missing equipment.
Sometime between Saturday, Sept. 18 and Sunday, Sept. 19 thieves made off with a variety of instruments from Road Dogs Music Supply, located on 3rd Ave, said the release.
“It’s disappointing for all of us when thefts occur at local businesses,” said Cpl. Tim Anderson, Watch Commander with Whitehorse RCMP. “Anyone who sees or has information about what could be a stolen guitar or other items related to this offence is encouraged to be safe and contact police.”
Items reported missing are:
Three guitars – Epiphone Flying V (ebony), Epiphone Les Paul Standard (ivy green) and an Epiphone SG Special P-90 (Pelham blue).
