… but, better yet, never leave an oboe in a car unattended.

On April 5, a Stratford Avenue man pulled into his driveway and went into his home, leaving his $8,000 Marigaux oboe in his car, a Fairlawn police report said.

The Akron Symphony Orchestra player told police he left the doors unlocked.

There was no damage to the man’s car and there are no suspects.
