Corey Taylor is breathing a sigh of relief as he has recovered almost all of the equipment that was recently stolen from him.
The Slipknot / Stone Sour frontman took to his Twitter account on Friday to announce the good news, tweeting , “PROUD to say we have 98% of the equipment back! Wouldn't have happened w/o the [West Des Moines Police Department], my wife and the goodness of people! Thank you! #trust”
According to the Des Moines Register , Taylor filed a police report on July 7 that $36,000 worth of equipment had been taken from his house and storage units, including two guitars that were once owned by late Slipknot bassist Paul Gray , who died in 2010. Taylor had said that sources informed him that one of his friends may have stolen the equipment.
Some of Taylor’s equipment was later identified by one of the singer’s friends at a guitar store, whose manager returned some items and is helping Taylor to track down other pieces of his stolen equipment.
No arrests have been reported, though police continue to investigate the case.
