(TeamRock Radio) Police in Houston, Texas, have arrested 130 people suspected of working together to steal music equipment from touring bands. It follows a spate of thefts in the region, where vehicles pulling trailers - a standard means of travel for musicians - had been targeted. Over $2m of property is thought to have been involved.

In January this year, Saving Country Music reported that Houston was becoming the "stolen music gear capital of the world." The sting, codenamed Operation Wheels And Deals, was executed after the theft of a 100-year-old fiddle from country music artist Zane Williams resulted in the discovery of new information.

Houston Police Department Captain Daryn Edwards says: "HPD's burglary and theft division was investigating a large theft that involving Zane Williams." Read more here.
