Hi, Some nameless, faceless little toerag decided to have my car away last night from the Stapleford Area of Nottingham. The car (company one) was a Metallic Blue VW Passat reg: BP53 JRV, but the most galling problem is that my beloved, treasured, wife comes second in the list of my affections, Conn Elkhart 8H trombone was in the boot. The car was left unattended for approx 1.5 hours and they have had the whole lot away. The list of stolen items is below. One leather briefcase containg, Compaq laptop, HP I paq, one Nokia 6310i and a Nokia 6230. One blue rucksack containing 1 Humes and Berg Cup mute, 1 copper bottomed Joral mute, a Denis Wick practice mute, a pluger and an un-named bucket mute. 2 metal music stand 1 black music desk 1 trombone stand 1 Conn Elkhart 8H rose brass bell, (sob sob) 2 VB 5G mouthpieces, one with a gold rim. In a Black Bam x lite gig case. I will publish the serial number once I've dug it out. Whilst I'd be very interested to receive any information on the theft of any of the above items, if you are offered a 8H Elkhart by some burberry wearing tosspot I personally would be very interested to receive not only their names, addresses but also small spherical parts of their anatomy that I may use as earrings or counter balance weights. I appreciate I may be urinating in the wind in the slim hope I may be reunited with my baby, but any info would be gratefully received. Also, if anyone has a 40 year old Elkhart for sale please PM. Yours disgruntled from Nottingham Vigilante Rich PS MODS sorry of this is in the wrong section, pease feel free to reallocate where necessary.
