Of the 67 signed celebrity guitars that were stolen from an Uncle Bob’s Self Storage facility in Garland, Texas, on Christmas Eve, 63 have been recovered thanks to tips police received about the break-in. Police have issued arrest warrants for two men believed to be connected with the stolen stash, worth an estimated $70,000.
The instruments that were not recovered are believed to have been given away as Christmas gifts to unidentified parties. Suspects Robert Allison Davis and Jason Bruce have arrest records.
Over the past four years, Brian Hughes, spearhead of the Purtis Creek State Park charitable organization, has been collecting the guitars with the intent of auctioning them to raise funds. The guitars have been signed by stars such as country singer Taylor Swift and stock-car driver Tony Stewart. Hughes’ charity sponsors activities for children at the park, near Eustace, Texas.
