American Head Charge guitarist Cameron Heacock arrested on suspicion of guitar theft

He'll appear in court later today.

The lead singer of metal band American Head Charge has been arrested after police allegedly found more than a dozen stolen guitars inside his van.

Cameron Heacock was reportedly pulled over by police after he drove a stolen van from a motel in Costa Mesta, California.

Upon inspection of the van, police found that it was packed with stolen property, with the discovery then leading them to a warehouse where thirteen guitars and a motorcycle were discovered.


Nine of the instruments were taken from Guitar Center, a music shop in Fountain Valley.

Heacock is in custody at Santa Ana’s Central Men’s Jail, where he is expected to remain before a court appearance later today.

Heacock’s last release with American Head Charge came in the form of 2016’s ‘Tango Umbrella’, the group’s fourth album and their first full-length release in over 10 years.

Guitar Center employees say than more than $10,000 worth of guitar equipment has been recovered, while police are working to find the owners of four other guitars and a selection of stolen property.
