Incident Description: 
During an event at our collective space (the Eco Collective, in Pilsen), 3 men in black hoodies paid to get in & were weird and shifty all night. They slipped to the back when the event ended, opened up our dividing doors to the rest of the garage, and stole this ( and 3 other bikes) through our back door. There are 6 people in our collective, this is our main bike storage area and is a locked and enclosed space. list of items stolen: KHS Urban Uno bike · Schwinn Bike · 30’ ladder · Vitamix 5300 (not only used for work, but a gift from one of our mothers) · Rigid 18v Drill and Impact Driver · Chop Saw · Yamaha MG10XU Mixer · Alesis Multmix 8 USB · several Shure SM 58 microphones · Two Behringer b212 speakers · Fender Roadhouse Strat · Fender Frontman 2x12 amp (it has Daymade written all over it) · Ernie Ball Volume Pedal, Russian Big Muff, MXR Phase 90, MXR Overdrive, loop pedal, tuner, various ¼” cables of different lengths · All our Daymaker merch save for a few tapes (this actually has no value, but maybe the hardest to stomach) · Toyo-View 45CX View Camera w/210mm lens and 8 neg carriers · The BEST Polaroid of Eric Newmiller that’s ever been taken · Berlebach Wooded Tripod · Minolta Spot Meter · 2 Bowen Monolights and stands
