City Slang: Party-goer steals from Seger
20-year-old Andrew Thompson was arrested on Tuesday and charged with stealing from Bob Segerâ€™s house during a party thrown by Segerâ€™s 16-year-old daughter.
As Gawker put it, what the hell was a 20-year-old doing at 16-year-old girlâ€™s party?
But anyway, Thompson is alleged to have taken some cash, a Rolex, a pair of sneakers autographed by Shaquille Oâ€™Neal and, biggest of all, a 1978 Gibson Les Paul that featured on Bobâ€™s Greatest Hits album. Police say Thompson admits to taking everything but the guitar.
â€śIt mysteriously showed up right after I talked to him, but he denied he took it,â€ť Orchard Lake Detective Darrell Betts said to CBS Detroit. â€śThat was my main goal, getting that guitar back â€¦ Itâ€™s priceless.â€ť
Apparently, the man/boy is known to the Segers.
â€śThey trusted this kid,â€ť Betts said.
