GRESHAM, OR (KPTV) -

A Gresham man is asking people to keep an eye out for his karaoke equipment, which was stolen out of the car in his driveway last Thursday.

David York of DNA Mobile Music told FOX 12 he doesn’t usually leave his gear in his car, but happened to that night after coming home from a double shift.

“My wife came out that morning and saw a blanket between our cars, and that usually goes over my mixer,” York said. “She opened up the door and saw that everything was gone.”

From his speakers, stands and cables to his mics, mixer and laptop – even his songbooks were stolen. It’s specialized equipment that will cost $3,000 to replace.

But because the lock was popped, leaving no damage to his car, York said his insurance company won’t cover it.

Without his equipment, he’s already had to cancel three gigs at a loss of hundreds of dollars of income.

“I have a part time job that is retail and then I do this so I can make a living, so this, it hurts. It hurts a lot,” he said.

While he’s not sure who stole it, he said some people came by to look at another car he had for sale and saw him loading it up.

He has one speaker left which was left in his garage that night. It and the speakers that were stolen are a unique shade of dark blue instead of the more common black.

He’s contacted police and six pawn shops with full descriptions of what was taken, and he hopes it’s a story that doesn’t end on a sour note.

“We’re trying to fight to get more equipment and I don’t know how we’re going to do it,” he said.

If you know anything that can help, contact Gresham police.
