Tom Petty Thief Apprehended - Stolen Music Recovered

Via TMZ: A huge stash of Tom Petty treasure -- including his unreleased music -- is back with his family ... because cops didn't let the alleged burglar do him like that. Law enforcement sources told TMZ that a man broke into Petty's San Fernando Valley storage unit last month and swiped at least $100k worth of valuables. Among the jacked items were guitars and other instruments and some guns. Perhaps most significantly, some precious hard drives loaded with Tom's music -- including unreleased tracks -- were stolen.

The good news -- police caught a suspect who confessed to the crime. He's been arrested for burglary. Even better, sources reported that they recovered the hard drives and the guns. As for the instruments, the cops are currently running down some leads. Police aren't saying if the storage unit was specifically targeted or randomly hit. Any potential future thieves out there, you've been warned ... don't come around there no more!
