The Washington County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in finding an electric guitar that was stolen during a burglary that occurred in the Clear Spring area on Dec. 31.
A guitar matching the stolen black Fender Squier Strat was sold to Washington Street Pawn Brokers and the shop sold the guitar to an unknown individual on Jan. 11, according to the sheriff’s department.
The sheriff’s department would like to talk to the person who bought the guitar to determine if it is the instrument that was stolen in the burglary, the sheriff’s office said.
The victim of the burglary is a U.S. Marine who is currently deployed in Afghanistan, police said.
Anyone with information about the guitar can contact Det. Jared Barnhart at the sheriff’s office at 240-313-2183.
