Public Service Announcement

Hello there, Gentle Readers who also happen to be residents of Fort Bragg:

One of my neighbors had his van broken into on Wednesday night/Thursday morning while it was parked on Stewart Street. Whoever broke in took a substantial amount of musical equipment, which sucks both because he is a musician and he likes playing music and is attached to his gear, and because playing music is one of the ways in which he earns a living. So, if anyone happens to hear anything about it, he would heartily appreciate any/all info; you can contact me (meloukhia at gmail dot com) or the folks at the police department. In an ideal world, everything will be returned, and nothing will be the worse for wear, so let’s hope for that, ok?
