800 Vinyl Records Stolen

6:19 p.m. —52 Sandcastle Drive.

Theft. An estimated 800 classic rock vinyl records from artists like The Beatles, Elvis Presley, Pink Floyd and Led Zeplin. The victim told police that she had allowed the suspect to stay temporarily in her home, with the intention of helping out around the house with things like mowing the lawn and repairing fixtures. The victim’s son noticed that her collection of records was missing when he came to check on her.

Though the records total almost $5,000, victim said they were also of incredible sentimental value and like most classic vinyls, unable to be fully replaced.
