New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Platinum selling International recording artists STATIC-X have filed a police report with the LAPD, siting that their warehouse space (which is also shared with the band Dope) was recently robbed of nearly 200K worth of touring equipment during the Corona Virus Lockdown.

The two bands were advised to take the story public, in order to help raise awareness with other small business owners and bands alike.
"With most of us in lock down, and those who aren't locked down, wearing masks in public, apparently it's a great time to be a thief", says Static-X drummer Ken Jay.

The band has released a statement on the robbery:
"We want to encourage our community to keep a close eye on your property and on your facilities during this unprecedented timeā€¦ We also ask for our fans to keep an eye out for the stolen items and maybe we can help the police find these people."

The band has publicized a list of stolen equipment, complete with many of the serial numbers. The list includes: Multiple LED video panels, 2 drum kits, 40+ cymbals, various high end audio/video gear, microphones, racks, branded backdrops, etc.

They have also set up a tip center where you can share any info that may help in the investigation.
"This is tough one to swallow " says Edsel Dope. "Our bands are small businesses that have developed and refined our touring systems over years. The amount of time and effort that has gone into building out the tech and AV production alone is hard to quantify. It's allot of money. We own all of our own gear and have built our touring business through years of continuous investment back into ourselves.
"In the end, we recognize that there are far worse things happening around the world. We want to send out positive vibes to everyone in this crazy time. Stay safe, protect yourself from ALL the threats, and take care of each other.
We will learn from this experience and take the necessary steps to rebuild during this down time, while allowing ourselves to be a cautionary tale for others.
Stay safe and see you soon!" - Static-X & Dope
