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.

So, what exactly happened?
It was actually kind of dumb on my part. My car battery was dead so my wife came to the gas station and gave me a jump start and I needed to put coolant too cause the car was overheating, so I had to leave it still running cause you have to have it on to put in the coolant so we went around the side of the gas station where the clerk was asleep in the store to buy some coolant. I felt a shitty feeling for leaving my car on and then as I'm walking back to it I see a guy sprinting to it to jump in. So I start running and I grab the door, but he gets away, so I chased him for a few blocks in my wife's car. I ran a red light and then flagged down two cops, and they gave chase, but they only went for 2 blocks, and they didn't know who they were following in the first place, but I could see the guy getting away.
