Multiple record stores in Chicago robbed, rare hardcore and metal records stolen

Meteor Gem

Last week, several rare records and box sets were stolen from Chicago record store Meteor Gem. The shop also mentioned that both Signal Records and Reckless Records also saw break-ins. 

Among the items stolen were a substantial collection of sought-after vinyl and box sets. The theft took place after the culprits broke into the store during the night, gaining access by breaking a window. 

The shop has since appealed to various Chicago record stores to be on the lookout for the stolen items and has shared a comprehensive list of the records and box sets that went missing.
