Authorities are looking for three suspects who they say stole guitars valued at $15,000 Saturday, Dec. 23, but left the loot behind during their getaway, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department said.

Deputies were alerted to the scene at about 5 a.m. The alarm company notified deputies after video surveillance showed individuals taking guitars from inside a Guitar Center on the 12400 block of Foothill Boulevard in Rancho Cucamonga.

The suspects fled the scene with the items toward a dirt field after an employee arrived at the business, the release said. Deputies were able to recover the items.

The suspects concealed their faces and wore gloves, the release said. They also ransacked the business, causing an estimated $6,500 damage.
