DALLAS (AP) — Dallas police have recovered four guitars stolen from Nils Lofgren before the longtime member of the E Street Band before a show.

Dallas police tweeted Monday that they also have made an arrest in the theft. Cpl. Debra Webb provided no further details.

Lofgren tweeted his gratitude that his instruments have been recovered, saying: “Looks like my guitars are coming back to me.”

Police haven’t said if a harp that was also stolen has been found.

The instruments were left in a van parked outside a Holiday Inn Thursday. The theft was discovered Friday morning.

The veteran rocker used borrowed instruments when he performed solo at the Kessler Theater in Dallas on Friday night.

The E Street Band has been Bruce Springsteen’s backup band since 1972.
