This time a "stocky white man wearing a black hat" broke into a U.K. youth hostel and stole an accordion, according to the Hampstead & Highgate Express.
Here's the tragic twist on the ol' "they stole the car and left two accordions" joke: "The Excelsior piano accordion, worth thousands of pounds, was the only instrument stolen from the hostel practice room."
The victim, 18-year-old Lithuanian squeezer Ksenija Sidorova, is described as a "virtuoso teenage musician ... left devastated after her beloved accordion was taken by thieves."
It's a long-shot, but here goes. Detective Sgt. Paul Stephens from Camden Police says: "Have you seen the stolen accordion or do you know someone who has? Has someone approached you in attempt to sell it to you? I am appealing for anyone with any information which may assist the investigation to come forward to police."
Anyone with information should call Camden Police on 020-8733 6913 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
