Three Men Arrested For Stealing LAMB OF GOD's Guitars


Three Men Arrested For Stealing LAMB OF GOD's Guitars
According to CBS 5, three men have been arrested for allegedly stealing guitars from LAMB OF GOD while the band was in Phoenix earlier this month.

The three guitars were stolen from the group’s trailer on Thursday, May 2, between midnight and 4:30 a.m., according to Sgt. Vince Lewis of the Phoenix Police Department. LAMB OF GOD was in town to perform at Phoenix’s Ak-Chin Pavilion as the support act for SLAYER.

One of the guitars was put up for sale on the online app OfferUp.com three days after it was stolen. OfferUp lets users buy and sell directly without giving out their personal information.

One of the men tried to pawn one of the guitars but was turned away, Lewis said.

William Widener and Michael Blakeslee were arrested on Wednesday, May 8, just before 10:30 p.m.

Justin Petersen was arrested the following day.

All three were booked on theft and trafficking in stolen property charges.

Lewis said all three guitars are still missing.

On May 5, LAMB OF GOD guitarist Willie Adler‘s “Warbird” guitar had reportedly been offered up on OfferUp by someone calling themselves “Clash With.” After exchanging a few notes with a potential buyer, the seller changed his profile photo and was no longer responding to inquiries.

Last week, Live Nation Entertainment, owner of Phoenix’s Ak-Chin Pavilion, put out a message via marketing director Danielle Engel that the venue was “cooperating fully with local law enforcement.”

LAMB OF GOD‘s current North American tour with SLAYER kicked off in Phoenix and will culminate at the Xfinity Center in Mansfield, Massachusetts on May 25.
