Two days later police contacted the members of KKF to share the news: The van had been found in north city. Unfortunately it had been taken to a scrap yard, decimated and was no longer driveable.

"I can't imagine they got any more than $500 for scrap," laments Holler. "But I'm sure they gutted it for parts first and sold those separate." He considers the odd nature of the crime -- the lack of broken glass, the Club. "Now that I'm thinking about it, I wouldn't be surprised if they towed the van to begin with then just took it and all the other vehicles they stole in the same day to a garage."

The band has found a loaner vehicle to use for its tour, which will go on as planned. A fundraiser will be set up soon to help get a new van for KKF -- we will update this post with that information when it comes.

In the meantime, Holler is looking into possible legal action against the scrap yard. "They took a vehicle without that vehicle's title," he says angrily. "That cannot be fucking legal."

"We're going to continue looking into it and possibly seek legal action."
