DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Daytona Beach Police say they’ve recovered two of seven stolen electric guitars that were all signed by rock music legends.
On Tuesday afternoon, the department tweeted they recovered one signed by Van Halen and another by Bob Dylan. They also have one person in custody.

According to the Daytona Beach News Journal, the guitars are owned by Jack Baker who kept them in unit 455 at Hyde Park Storage Suites, an “upscale storage facility.” The manger believes Baker may have left the unit open, as there was no sign of forced entry into the unit.
The News Journal also reports a missing guitar signed by the Rolling Stones, but it’s not immediately clear if Daytona Beach Police are still looking for that one, as it wasn’t mentioned in their tweet. The guitars are estimated to be worth about $19,000 total.
