Music Keyboard Stolen During Burglary, ‘Cathedral’-Like Playing Believed to Be Contributing Factor

A watch was also stolen. Suspects described as "skinny white males," one of whom was "rough" looking and possibly missing teeth.

A musician told police he may know why his Yamaha 250 keyboard was taken during an Aug. 6 burglary at his Hayes Road home.

“[The victim] said he frequently plays his keyboard ‘like a cathedral’ for his own personal enjoyment,” the officer wrote in the incident report. “[The victim] said that he suspects that someone may have gotten tired of it.”

The keyboard, along with a gold Seiko watch, were the only items taken, but the victim said several drawers and cabinets throughout the home had been searched. The burglar is believed to have forced open the front door to gain entry to the home.

Witnesses reported seeing a suspicious vehicle in the neighborhood at the time of the incident and provided police with a description of the vehicle and the suspects.

One of the witnesses described the driver as a “skinny white male” who looked “rough and was possibly missing teeth.” The passenger was also described as a “skinny white male.”

The case is listed as active.
