Tempe’s Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers Urge Fans to Help Locate Stolen Trailers With Band EquipmentSource: Instagram/rogerclyneandthepeacemakers

Local rock favorites, Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers, are reaching out to fans and residents after a serious setback plucked them unceremoniously from their post-tour buzz. Two trailers full of the band's instruments and gear were reportedly lifted from a Tempe neighborhood, leaving the musicians in a lurch. The theft took place while the group was performing in Mexico during a recent stint, known as JanJam, a detail corroborated by an Instagram post that made its rounds on social media, according to 12 News.

According to the band's own social media outreach, the missing equipment comprises a stark black 12-foot by 6-foot double axle trailer alongside a smaller white trailer, distinguishable by its orange and gray stripes. With their livelihood temporarily silenced, the trailers were last seen possibly humming with absent sound near Scottsdale and Curry roads, as the band lamented their loss on Instagram, "If you hear of anyone who recently acquired a black 12x6, double-axle trailer (see pic, past RC’s hat),… or some instruments and amps that you typically see on stage with us, please send a DM to our FB page," the band penned, evoking the community to keep vigilant eyes on local pawn shops, as per 12 News.

The band has not officially reported the incident to the police. With the Tempe Police Department confirming the absence of a report concerning this unfortunate event, the path forward twangs with uncertainty. Citizens are encouraged, if stumbling upon the loot in a second-hand context, to reach out directly to the band's Facebook page. "But if you happen to see anything in a pawn shop, please let us know," the band conveyed in the digital space, almost hearing the silence left by the stolen melodies, as reported by azfamily.com.
