Juke's Evan Lamb Has $60,000 Worth of Gear Stolen, Help Catch the Crooks

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.

Evan Lamb and his stolen Ibanez guitar

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.

I'm sorry, but either this guy is trying to commit some sort of fraud, or he is a real idiot. But let's assume that he's an idiot. I would then have to point out that to put coolant in a running (read: EXTREMELY HOT) engine is a surefire way to end up in the hospital with 2nd/3rd degree burns. There's even a label on the radiator cap, which clearly warns you not to do this. It should also go without saying that leaving your engine running, FOR ANY REASON, in a bad neighborhood, with (supposedly) $60,000.00 worth of gear in your vehicle... well yeah, like I said - you either did it on purpose to commit some kind of fraud, or you really are that stupid.

this could not have happened to a nice guy.  Sorry Evan.  And fuck that guy with the black shorts. Hope your axe falls on his head. 


 @kevinFirst... I let the engine cool off long before putting more coolant in it (about 40 mins), but you have to have the engine running when you put in the coolant - every mechanic will tell you that. Second... There are far worse neighborhoods in this town, anyone who lives in the area will tell you that. Third... it wasn't a "supposed" $60,000 worth of equipment, I have the receipts and tax returns (showing depreciation of said gear) to prove it. Third... Fuck you for assuming it was any sort of fraud, you don't know me. Fourth... shit yeah, its the largest lapse in in judgement I've ever had. Thanks for your concern.


 @kevin And I can't count today... its been a long week.
