COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH)–The Isbell Family travels the country. The Tennessee-based family of four is also a Christian gospel music group.
“It hurt really bad and I couldn’t stop crying,” said Autumn Isbell.
On Friday, the family stopped for dinner at a Longhorn Steakhouse, in Dublin.
When they returned to their van, Eric Isbell said roughly $10,000 in equipment had been stolen.
“The only thing they didn’t take was a lot of the heavier stuff,” he said.
Eric told NBC4 that several electronics and six instruments, many of which were heirlooms, were missing.
“I don’t know who it was that took it, but I never had one bad thought toward them,” he said. “I was just grieving that I lost my things that my grandfather gave to me.”
Columbus police are investigating the burglary.
In the meantime, The Isbell Family continues to perform with borrowed equipment.
Rachel Isbell said she and her family are relying on each other for support.
“These things did mean a lot to us,” she said. “We would love to get them back, but as long as we have each other, these things are just material things.”
