DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Eight guitars signed by the likes of Eddie Van Halen, Eric Clapton and Bob Dylan were stolen from a storage unit in Daytona Beach last month, police said.
On Tuesday, officers said they were able to return two of the guitars to their owner after a man tried to sell them at a pawn shop on Mary McLeod Bethune Boulevard.
Police said they arrested Jeremy Andrewlavage in connection with the burglary at the Hyde Park Storage Suites on West International Speedway Boulevard.
Police said they are questioning Andrewlavage, who was arrested in November on stealing a scooter from the same storage facility, to see if he knows where the other guitars are located.
In total, police said the stolen guitars are worth an estimated $20,000.
A woman taking care of the unit for the guitars’ elderly owner said she found that the guitars and a bottle of vodka were missing from the unlocked unit in December.
She said all the guitars were there in October when she helped move out some furniture.
