Geez..Tell John I am sorry..It really makes me angry that someone did this to his family..Especially stealing the painting from Rob. That is a birthday gift a friend made him, that is just messed up that someone would steal that..I hope someone turns in the asshole who did it soon.

 Sucks that anyone has to worry about assholes robbing them..

That's really terrible.  What kind of dumbass would really have the balls to rob JOHN 5 anyway?  Their gonna get caught! 

Ya know, my dad's a cop and said this to me, but I think it might even be obvious anyway.... it's really sounding like the person that did this might know John 5 personally.  And that's really fucked up if it's the case.  Of course we don't have really much info at all, but given the info that he chose to tell the public....look at the details--

First off, how did they even know where John 5 lives?  And then they must have known exactly when he wouldn't be home.  Maybe they were even watching his house for awhile.  Look at the stuff they stole.  They had to have known it was John 5, and not just some guy.  How did they know to take priceless guitars and things.  This doesn't sound like a common criminal.  They would have probably chose different items to steal if they didn't know they were in a rockstars house, right?  ....who knows what might have been on those Mac computers... that would really freak me out.  What if he had all kinds of unreleased songs on there or something that end up online?

Also, that is truly an amazing Creature from the Black Lagoon painting Zombie did.  Rob could easily be having his own art shows and things and could be a glorified painter with exhibits similar to Marilyn Manson if he wished.  Amazing artist.  It's a real shame someone took all this stuff.  Hopefully they catch the fuck! 

And I feel bad for John 5.  I'd feel like moving after an incident like that.  I'd imagine just feeling dirty and crappy about the whole thing and always wondering if it will happen again.  I'd want to just get the hell out of there.

Good luck finding whoever did this, John!

Well, at least the asshole will have a hard time selling the painting, if that was his intention when he ( well, I am assuming it was a guy) stole it.

This person will get caught.  They didn't take into consideration many things which will stand out.
