There's a banda bandit on the loose, they say. Someone, they believe, is breaking into high schools from the east side of Los Angeles to the shores of Manhattan Beach and stealing expensive tubas to supply a fast-growing black market for banda music

There's a lot of metal in a tuba. I'm thinking a crackhead could get enough money at the scrap metal place to stay high for at least 12 hours.

That's good. You don't want anyone horning in on your stash. :biggrin-new:

It does explain the increase in the tuba wearing bums holding signs saying will trade brass for gas
