PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A New Jersey man is accused of stealing enough musical equipment to outfit quite a few bands.

Philadelphia police said Friday that Jason Mackenzie of Berlin, New Jersey, has been charged with burglary and related offenses in a break-in at a self-storage unit on Castor Avenue.

Investigators say Mackenzie and two accomplices cut a hole in the top of the storage unit on the night of March 25 and took 35 guitars, 10 amplifiers and other electronic equipment as well as vinyl records and children’s toys.

Detectives apprehended Mackenzie on Thursday. There was no word on the status of the two alleged accomplices.

It’s not clear yet whether Mackenzie has retained an attorney who could comment on his behalf.
