Launchpad Extraordinaire Shawn Wasabi Tragically Robbed In Break-In [Pictures]

Yes, this is another sad story of a producer who had his gear stolen. This time, Shawn Wasabi had many items stolen after someone broke into Twitter user Czarletterijene’s car by breaking a window. Of the items stolen, his Macbook, Midi Fighter 64, hard drive, and passport were included. Not to mention the emotional distress of having been robbed, the financial loss is immense.

@shawnwasabi the police don't believe me and they refused to accept a report at first because we were "intoxicated/eyes are red"

So tips to producers: don’t leave your equipment in a car if you can help it. Even further, don’t leave anything in plain view – it’s an open invitation to thieves.
