A musician in Cobb County, Ga., is grateful to the local police department for recovering the 20 heirloom guitars that were stolen from his storage unit. The man notified police upon finding a different lock securing the unit he was renting at a Compass Self Storage facility.


David Cahill, a thief responsible for multiple break-ins at the facility, was arrested and charged after police secured a search warrant and uncovered 19 stolen guitars in Cahill’s house. The remaining guitar was in New York, but the police seized it and delivered all 20 guitars to the victim’s home.


“At Compass Self Storage you must have a gate code to enter the property... the suspect rented a unit at the facility," said Edward Hainrihar, Jr., vice president of operations of The Amsdell Companies, which operates facilities under the Compass Self-Storage brand. "Compass assisted the authorities in their investigation to apprehend the suspect. The suspect is no longer allowed on the property."


A representative from the company stated that this type of incident is rare, and the property is fenced and gated with video surveillance. The company is also installing additional security measures as an extra precaution.
