My band (Lucius) and myself are all Ditmas residents and we are so sad to say that we had our van stolen Thursday morning on E. 17th and Ditmas. It's a champagne/tan color 2009 Ford E350 Econoline 12 passenger van. there is a very minor dent on the rear bumper right side, but otherwise the car is pretty damn clean. the new york plates are FYW-3876 but we JUST got new york plates a week ago so our old plates were still in the car which were Texas plates BL7Y292 so they could have easily swapped them.this is a list of some of the gear that was inside, any posting or help spreading hte word would be extremely helpful and much appreciated. this is our livelihood

The Q at Parkside
News and Nonsense from the Brooklyn neighborhood of Lefferts and environs, or more specifically a neighborhood once known as Melrose Park. Sometimes called Lefferts Gardens. Or Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. Or PLG. Or North Flatbush. Or Caledonia (west of Ocean). Or West Pigtown. Across From Park Slope. Under Crown Heights. Near Drummer's Grove. The Side of the Park With the McDonalds. Jackie Robinson Town. Home of Lefferts Manor. West Wingate. Near Kings County Hospital. Or if you're coming from the airport in taxi, maybe just Flatbush is best.

Public Service Announcement - Van Stolen
A note came through the wire this morning of a stolen van. Cars get stolen all the time, but this one broke my heart as it belonged to a band and all their gear was inside. The group's called Lucius. The Q did many years with a touring band and our beloved van named Mensy, so if you see the described vehicle or any of the gear, be sure to give them a holler here and I'll pass it along. And let this be cautionary tale to everyone - this is still NYC and the bad guys still live here too. Good luck Lucius.
