Albuquerque magician has car stolen along with thousands of dollars worth of equipment

Albuquerque is #1 in the U.S. for auto theft.
Who would have thought that leaving "thousands of dollars worth of equipment inside it" was a bad idea?

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.— A children’s entertainer who performs at birthdays around town had his car stolen along with the thousands of dollars worth of equipment inside it. Paul Cochrell has been performing as “Tall Paul” for the past two decades. He started doing magic tricks at parties when he was 11 years old.

“It'd be nice if people weren't terrible. I mean I guess the weirdest part is they don't know what they took,” Cochrell said. “Yeah there's some puppets and some sound equipment they may recognize but the rest of it—they don't know what to do with.

Cochrell has since tracked down his car and replaced the broken window, but not even magic could bring back the items from his show including Vern the Bird. Despite Cochrell’s misfortune, he said he still has hope.

“Bad things happen, but people are good so you know I haven't lost faith in humanity,” he said. “Just bad things happen occasionally so just gotta pick yourself up and keep moving forward.”

1. The perpetrator has disappeared...the police are having difficulty with the investigation and

say that finding the criminal will be like pulling a rabbit out of a hat, etc.....
