Evan Lamb was at the BP gas station at Coral Way and SW 23rd Avenue around 1 a.m. when he got a bad feeling about the $60,000 worth of gear that he'd left in his van with the engine running.
As he was walking back to his idling truck, a Latin male in his 20s with a ponytail and black shorts was sprinting toward it. The thief jumped in, slammed the gas pedal, and took off with Evan hanging onto the door.
For the local sound man and guitar player in The Big Tasty, Juke, and Crimson, it signalled the instant loss of 15 years of purchases, not to mention his work vehicle.
We here at Crossfade spoke to Evan about how it happened. Check the cut for a full list of the stolen gear. And help catch the crooks.
