Stolen bass returned

Here’s another happy ending for a stolen instrument alert…

We posted last week about a student at East Tennessee State University whose car was stolen, with her upright bass inside.

As it happens, it looks like the thieves weren’t much interested in the bass, or the car. Jamie Collins, the owner of both, got a call yesterday (10/22) from the police in Bristol, TN saying that they had found the car in a mall parking lot, with “something that looked like a giant violin in the back.”

Jamie should be reunited with her bass today.
