Thieves put a major damper on the latest Southland tour swing by A Flock of Seagulls — among the first wave of early 1980s bands that found an audience on MTV — making off with what group members estimate was $70,000 worth of musical equipment in a van stolen from the parking lot of the hotel in Downey where the group was staying.

Video from the hotel’s surveillance cameras shows a man emerging from a car parked nearby, walking to the van, quickly finding his way inside and driving off.
