A friend of Bob Seger's 16-year-old daughter has been arrested for the August robbery of the singer's Michigan house, according to Ultimate Classic Rock. Police allege that after Seger's daughter threw a party, 20-year-old Andrew D. Thompson of Waterford Township, Michigan, snuck back into the house and made off with cash, a Rolex, a pair of sneakers autographed by Shaquille O'Neal and a 1978 Gibson Les Paul that's featured on Seger's Greatest Hitsalbum. Police claim Thompson admits to taking everything but the guitar -- which was left on the family's dock after police questioned him and other party-goers. On Tuesday (June 26th) Thompson was charged with larceny from a building and released on bond.
Orchard Lake Detective Darrell Betts said to CBS-TV's Detroit affiliate: "(The guitar) mysteriously showed up right after I talked to him, but he denied he took it. That was my main goal, getting that guitar back . . .It's priceless (to Seger). They trusted this kid."
