Stolen Guitar Returned to Rock Legend Chuck Berry

The guitar, stolen early last week, was returned to the rock legend and Delmar Loop regular Friday.

A stolen Gibson electric guitar, valued at $50,000, was returned to rock 'n roll legend Chuck Berry Friday. 

The St. Charles County Sheriff's Department recovered the stolen guitar from the home of one of the three men arrested in connection with the theft, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The Sheriff's Department was called Thursday to investigate reports of items stolen from Berry's estate near Wentzville.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that one of Berry's electric guitars and some power tools went missing from an unlocked office building and attached garage at the 35-acre "Berry Park" on Buckner Road.

Fox2 News reported that the guitar, a valuable 1978 Gibson ES-355, was reported stolen on Monday. On Tuesday, sheriff's department staff were called back about the stolen tools, which included 3 power washers, among other items.

Berry's neighbors called police Thursday about a suspicious van and U-Haul-type truck on the property. Deputies took three men into custody, although no charges have been filed.

Berry, 85, played his regular gig at Blueberry Hill in the Delmar Loop on Wednesday night.
