Autographed Led Zeppelin Albums, Other Vintage Records Stolen From Podiatrist’s Office



CORONA (CBSLA.com) — A podiatrist is offering a $5,000 reward for the return of vintage record albums he says were stolen from his Corona practice.

Jeffrey Katz says someone broke in through the roof of his office over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend and stole several irreplaceable albums, including all eight Led Zeppelin albums, signed by all four band members.

The vintage albums were previously locked in a vault but Katz decided to showcase them in his office and share them with his patients and staff.

Photographs showed that his walls were once lined with some of rock ‘n’ roll’s finest, including The Beatles. Also taken were albums by Fleetwood Mac and Eric Clapton.

“When I asked him, ‘Are you mad? Upset,’ he said, ‘You know what? It’s sad’ because they mean something to him. He went to a lot of the concerts as a young man,” said Sherie Tavernier, a staff member.

Katz estimates that the albums are worth $200,000 to $400,000. The albums weren’t insured.

“It’s pretty depressing and pretty sad,” he said.

He’s since filed a police report.
