This past Monday, reggae/rock band The Snails passed their usually parking spot to find their van completely missing.
After an outpouring of support and attention from the media, fans and community, the band and the van are now reunited. Guitarist Tim Hildebrand said that two women recognized the van in their neighborhood from local reports and checked with surrounding neighbors to see if it had belonged to anyone around the block. Connecting the dots, the two called the police.
However, it wasn’t returned without damage. All the equipment is gone and a window has to be replaced before the band embarks on their East Coast tour on May 19.
