Two Arrested Over Noah And The Whale Equipment Theft
...But police are still looking for the missing kit.
Two men have been arrested by Greater Manchester police after Noah And The Whale's entire set of equipment was stolen last week. A trailer containing the band's entire touring set up was lifted from the NCP car park in Trinity Way following The Whale's gig at the city's Club Academy last Tuesday (September 29).
The BBC reports that the purloined trailer was discovered at a house in Lower Broughton in Salford, but only one amp was found. One man aged 31 and another aged 40 were arrested, but the hunt goes on for the rest of the kit. The police are looking for a Ford Transit (registration S144 NBV) and a black Daewoo Leganza, which may have been used in the theft.
GMP spokesman Detective Sergeant Simon Akker said, "I would ask the public to help us find the outstanding musical equipment which is easily identifiable as much of the equipment is labelled with the band's name 'Noah and the Whale' or 'Whale'."
