Tom Petty & Heartbreakers — Cops Recover Stolen Guitars

A collection of five vintage guitars belonging to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers — worth untold thousands — has been recovered by law enforcement … after they were stolen last week.

The Culver City PD tells us, one man has been arrested in connection with the theft. The instruments have yet to be returned to the band.

The guitars — a 1967 12-string Rickenbacker, a Gibson SG TV Junior, a Fender Broadcaster, a 1967 Epiphone Sheridan, and a blue Dusenberg — were swiped from a Culver City soundstage in L.A. where Petty had been rehearsing.

Tom”s people had no comment.
