Whittier police say they recovered a van stolen from the 1980s band A Flock of Seagulls on Tuesday night.

The van was found in the 9100 block of Millergrove Drive in Santa Fe Springs at about 8:40 p.m. Unfortunately, the $70,000 worth of musical equipment and stage clothes were gone.

Surveillance video caught images of the thief stealing the van loaded with equipment from the band early Sunday morning outside a Comfort Inn in Downey after the band had played a gig.

A Flock of Seagulls is best known for their 1982 hit "I Ran." The band is continuing their tour with rented equipment.
