Its a musicians worst nightmare: a lifetime collection of instruments stolen.

Thats what happened to Marty Pelto, a lead guitarist for several local bands.

The crime happened at his Springfield home sometime last week. Thats when crooks made off with more than $30,000 of vintage guitars and other items.

We had somebody come in our house and take 17 of my husbands prized guitars, his 22-inch iMac computer and also our Kawasaki motorcycle, said Marty Peltos wife Charlotte. Not only did they steal our material items but they also stole our sense of security.    

Marty still has a guitar and is able to play gigs.

The case is being handled by the Robertson County Sheriffs Department. They are asking anyone with information to contact them.
