Kelowna - Tim Reardon said band equipment was stolen from his home outside of Lumby

Update: March 19

A Kelowna man is hoping the community will band together to support a Central Okanagan musician whose equipment was stolen earlier this month.

A GoFundMe page has been started for Tim Reardon of The Young’Uns with a fundraising goal of $5,000 with $2,300 raised as of Monday morning.

“We are going to help our brother and great friend, Tim Reardon out after most of his band equipment was stolen right from his home,” wrote Brad Krauza on the page.

“Its now time to help him out after all the years and generations of keeping us entertained and dancing.”

Original

A Central Okanagan musician has turned to social media to find his stolen band equipment.

Tim Reardon, of the Kelowna band The Young’Uns, said the equipment was stolen from his home outside of Lumby on Highway 6 sometime this week.

He noticed the lock was broken on his garage door a few days ago but didn’t think anything of it until he went to load up for a gig Friday, March 9.

“They made it look like everything was really normal, so you couldn’t really tell,” he said. He said called the RCMP that day.

Reardon is asking the public to look for high-end equipment in local pawn shops.

Yesterday, he made a post on Facebook which has been shared almost 500 times.

“Hopefully something will surface that will possibly lead to a lead,” he said. “Luckily I have house insurance so I’m hoping it’s covered. I have to cover it either way because it’s my livelihood.”

Emails have been sent to the Vernon RCMP for comment. The story will be updated as more information is provided.

The equipment list:

QSC Touchmix 16

• Microh LED Lighting System

• LINE 6 M9 x 2

• Traynor YVC 50 Black Guitar Amp
