Three Men Arrested In Theft Of LAMB OF GOD's Still Unrecovered Instruments
Earlier this month, Lamb Of God played the Ak-Chin Pavilion in Phoenix, AZ. The show resulted in the theft of Willie Adler's guitar and a bass belonging to John Campbell. While the instruments have still not yet been found, three men named William Widener, Michael Blakeslee, and Justin Petersen have all been arrested in connection with the theft.
According to Sgt. Vince Lewis of the Phoenix Police Department in a report by AZFamily, the trio were arrested on May 8 and May 9. Lewis says one of the guitars were put up for sale on an online app, while another was turned away from a pawn shop. All three men have been charged with theft and trafficking in stolen property, though the guitars have not yet been found.
So if you see these instruments around Phoenix, AZ, call the cops.

ATTENTION ALL…and particularly in the Phoenix area. My main beloved Warbird, along with @jayceerva one of kind hand painted bass; were stolen early Thursday morning from @akchin.pavilion in Phoenix. The pieces of shit that did this are suspected to be employed by @akchin.pavilion. local hands that were working Wednesday, our tour production day. Apparently, they waited around for all to leave, and made their way into the back of our semi to commit this felony. AGAIN..under the watch of @akchin.pavilion and their security. Karma is a fuckin bitch…
