Just came across this story on Aussie Arcade so thought I would repost here . The more eyes and ears that know the better the chance of them being recovered .

This was just posted on FB so i'm sharing here as it's important information (As cut and pasted).

They are probably in a container on their way to Europe or Asia already.... that sucks they were stolen!

Wow, someone had to know they were there and prep for that steal, so definitely someone who had eyes on them (which most thefts are...maybe a painter, electrician, landscaper, someone who works there, someone who saw where they were and saw what they were worth and came back with a plan). Hope they turn up quickly and safely! I'd definitely start scrolling through any list of who would have seen them over the last few weeks and start trying to match up on the vehicle though. Would put money on it not being a random act of theft.

Why don’t you out out a “want to buy” add for a Led Zeppelin pin and see if these guys are stupid enough to sell to you. Don’t know if Facebook marketplace is in Australia. Would give it a shot. Criminals are usually stupid!
