The theft was reported on Sept. 23 after the owner noticed one of his 225 boxes of memorabilia was missing, police said. The memorabilia, which was valued at $64,500, included signed album covers from Bob Dylan, Elton John, Van Halen, the Ramones, Paul McCartney, John Lennon and the Rolling Stones. All of the items were insured, police said.
