Man accused of stealing and pawning his friend’s 1970 Les Paul

Posted 02 Mar 2011 in Guitar Crime

It is alleged that a man from Hopkinton, MA, broke into a friend’s house last week and stole several items, including a vintage guitar, a prosecutor said yesterday in Framingham District Court. The items were then pawned. This included a 1970 Gibson Les Paul, along with two iPods and a laptop.

The accused thief had been in a band with the victim but he’d been kicked him because of his heroin addiction.

The items were recovered from the pawn shop by the family.

Joshua Leal was charged with breaking and entering, three counts of larceny of property worth more than $250 and two counts of receiving stolen property worth more than $250.

Leal was released without bail and is due back in court March 30 for a pretrial conference.
