Word had spread that the trailer containing pretty much all of the band Hawks musical equipment, along with a ton of merchandise, was stolen from in front of the house where vocalist Mike Keenan and drummer Shane Patrick live on Park Ave. near Oakland Cemetery.
Sometime late in the evening on Wed., Nov. 10, thieves smashed the padlock, pictured above in Keenan's hand, off of the trailer hitch on his car and hauled it away. It's a big trailer and the perps would have needed a vehicle big enough to tow it away.
Bottom line: It looks like the band lost about $8,000-$10,000 total. Insurance covers the trailer, but not what was inside, and that hurts. Benefits and vigilante street justice teams are coming together today, so check back here for a Paypal link and more information as it becomes available.
