LYNNWOOD, Wash. — Lynnwood Police Det. Bill Koonce says he arrested the suspect this week who walked into a music store and stole four guitars right off their walls.  Marcos Bazan was already in the Snohomish County jail on other theft charges.

Det. Koonce says Bazan was identified by a Washington’s Most Wanted viewer tip  to Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound.  He also arrested a woman who pawned the guitars and served as the getaway driver.

Det. Koonce was able to recover the guitars and return them to Kennelly Keys.

Bazan is WMW Capture #860.

The stolen guitars are part of Fender’s Squier line.  The thief got away with two Jaguars, one Thinline Tele, and one Strat.
