Oh, Sleeper's Van Burglarized in Cleveland

Oh, Sleeper were the victims of some thievery while on tour in Cleveland, Ohio. Here's the official word from bassist Lucas Starr:

"Well, we've been back on the road for two days now. Things were going awesome. We got to Cleveland, Ohio tonight to start the Artery Tour tomorrow night. We decided to find a movie theater to see the new Keven Spacey movie, 21.

"After the movie was over, we went out to our van and the driver side door's lock was busted. All of our personal belongings were stolen from us. All of the laptops, cell phones, phone chargers, ipods, ipod transmitter, books, money, cameras, backpacks, cash box, all of the band's money, briefcases, jackets, our GPS, and many other belongings were taken from us. It's very unfortunate, and very discouraging.

"As of now, we plan on continuing the tour. If anything changes, we'll let you know first-hand. Please keep us in your prayers, and pray that I will have mercy if I ever find the dude who stole our stuff."

Wouldn't they have a locator in both the GPS and the phone? I thought they had this now.
