On May 31 the store was looted. While Lana had the foresight to take many of the instruments to a secured location in the early afternoon, everything that remained in the repair room was stolen, including at least a dozen cellos and violins, flutes, trumpets, plus some brand-new instruments like a euphonium and two keyboards that had just arrived. All operational equipment, computers, printers, transaction equipment was either stolen or destroyed.
