Kerri Chandler's Stolen Music Bag Returned By Friend of 'Drunk' Thieves
New Jersey veteran DJ/producer Kerri Chandler took to Facebook on Sunday (Sept. 25) to inform fans that his music bag had been stolen during his appearance at Phonox nightclub in London. Hours later, his music bag was returned to him, as stated in an updated Facebook message posted today (Sept. 26).
"If you were watching a live feed tonight from this Italian girl (she said she was Italian and a DJ) PLEASE CONTACT ME!! IT HAS ALL MY MUSIC AND PERSONAL BELONGINGS!!" the producer said in his initial Facebook message. The girl who allegedly stole the bag said she was a DJ and was doing a Facebook Live stream the night of the incident.
The DJ threatened to turn the incident over to authorities if the bag wasn't returned in a timely manner. While Chandler's music was returned by a friend of the thieves who claimed they were "drunk," the artist posted that they had gone through his personal belongings and a special item gifted by his daughter was absent from the returned items.
"Words cannot describe my disappointment in these people, but I am completely overwhelmed by the support that everyone has shown and also the assistance from the team at Phonox, Marcia and Simone for all the help in locating these people", Chandler's Facebook message read. "I’m certain that it is this support that led to my bag being returned so THANK YOU!"
