Welcome to Philadelphia, newly-anointed guitar-stealing capital of the world. First Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore, getting his piece robbed from the Best Western. Now, a man stole a Les Paul in a Cherry Hill Sam Ash store. By shoving it down his pants as a female accomplice distracted employees. Twice. First on December 19th, then again, on January 8th. Using the exact same tactic.
How to catch the thief? He’s in his late 40s/early 50s, drives a black SUV, and speaks with a “heavy South Philadelphia accent.” Who said the golden age of South Philly crime was dead? [Philly.com]
