Rash of Tuba Thefts in Los Angeles

Twelve tubas have been stolen from Los Angeles area schools in the past few weeks. In some of the robberies, thieves took only tubas. Why?

The thefts, band leaders say, are probably attributable to Southern California’s banda music craze and to the high prices the brass instruments fetch on the black market.

A new tuba can cost upwards of $5,000, while a used instrument can cost $2,000.

In the comments, suggest more absurd reasons why criminals would want to steal a large number of tubas.
