Wichita music store loses violins to burglar

Associated Press - May 25, 2014 10:40 pm

Police in Wichita are looking for a burglar who made off with nearly $10,000 worth of stringed instruments from a music store.

KAKE-TV reports the break-in at Jim Starkey Music Center happened just before 6 a.m. Saturday. The suspect broke a front window, setting off an alarm.

Owner Dee Starkey says the burglar stole three student violins, four intermediate violins and a student cello. Some of the violins were valued at $1,700.

Starkey says he saw a suspicious man snooping around the store on Friday. Despite the loss, he says he’s grateful that no one was hurt and no guns were involved in the theft.
