From Texas Standard:
The Texas Capital claims to be the "live music capital of the world" but another Texas city might be able to lay claim to the "stolen music gear capital of the world."
Kyle "Trigger" Coroneos, editor of the website Saving Country Music, says over the past few years he'd heard a lot of stories from artists and bands saying their gear was stolen, seeming like an "epidemic" of thefts.
"It became so rampant, it was like, What's going on here?" he says. "There must be some underlying issue to it."
