On August 25th around 11 am, the band’s van, trailer, and all of their gear were stolen from the West Village neighborhood of Detriot, Michigan. In the robbery, Mungion lost all of their instruments in addition to the band’s lighting rig, monitors, amps, merch, and more, racking up at least $41,500 worth of loss. In the weeks since, the music community has rallied around the band, raising $31,000 on the band’s GoFundMe to help them recoup some of their losses and get them back on the road with gear of their own.Mungion Has Van, Trailer, Gear, Lights, And All Stolen Ahead Of First-Ever Headlining TourAfter the news broke, many of us assumed that we’d never see Mungion’s gear again. However, in a bizarre twist of fate, some of Mungion’s merch appeared following the robbery—and it’s definitely not in a place we ever expected. A few days after Mungion was robbed, local news Fox 2 Detroit broke the story that five armed gunmen robbed a Kay Beauty Supply on Saturday, August 26th, at 8:40 pm in Dearborn, Michigan, a city nine miles west of Detroit. During the beauty store hold-up, the armed robbers violently assaulted the three young women working at the store, threatened their lives when they were not compliant, and eventually forced one of the employees into the safe, in addition to stealing all of the cash from the registers, hair extensions, and the employee’s cell phones.However, here’s where things get really weird. In the beauty store’s security footage of the brutal armed robbery, you can clearly see that two of the robbers are wearing official Mungion flat brims. While it’s certainly possible that these armed robbers love the Chicago-based jam band (who doesn’t?), it seems more likely that the thieves were rocking stolen Mungion merch from the theft the previous night. You can take a look at the security camera footage from the beauty store robbery below, and check out Mungion’s post about their gear being used in the robbery above. Also, as a reminder, despite now having a clear picture of one of the thieves who stole Mungion’s gear, none of the band’s gear has been recovered. Please donate to the band’s GoFundMe here or below to help the band get back on their feet before the campaign ends later in the week, and let the band or the Detroit police know if you recognize the man involved in these two robberies.
