Woodsy's Music in Kent lost thousands of dollars in equipment during a recent theft from two of the shop's storage trucks.
Portage County Sheriff's Office Lt. Greg Johnson said two men cut the locks on the storage trucks and unloaded the gear sometime during the recent Labor Day holiday weekend.
Johnson said the theft wasn't discovered until Wednesday.
"They did get a substantial amount of equipment and sound control boards and lighting boards," he said.
He asked that the exact estimate of the gear's total value not be published but said one piece of equipment alone was worth several thousand dollars.
Video camera surveillance footage shows the two suspects, who are described as: one male with a dark complexion, between 5 feet 8 inches and 5 feet 10 inches tall and ranging from 180 pounds to 200 pounds; and the second male between 6 feet and 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighing around 180 pounds to 200 pounds. Both have short, buzzed hair cuts.
"The camera shows that this all happened early Sunday morning," Johnson said.
The trucks were parked at one of the music shop's storage facilities on S.R. 59 near Sheetz in Franklin Township.
Woodsy's employees posted a listing of some of the gear stolen on the shop's facebook page.
"If you see for sale any of the following, please let Woodsy's know," a message on the facebook page states.
Some of the gear stolen includes a Fender Precision electric bass guitar, a Yamaha maple custom drum kit and an Ampeg SVT bass amp.
Johnson said both the sheriff's office and Woodsy's has reached out to other local music stores and pawn shops to try and look for the equipment if it's resold.
"They’re going to have trouble unloading this," Johnson said. "It’s pretty high tech specific stuff."
Anyone with information about the robbery can call the sheriff's office at 330-296-5100.
