MADISON, Wis. (CBS 58) -- UW police are investigating a case of missing instruments Wednesday, Dec. 4.
Six instruments were stolen, including Samantha Carter's $10,000 violin -- the same instrument she's practiced on for six years and needs for rehearsal and grad school auditions.
"When you think about how valuable these instruments are, not only monetary wise...we've heard from students who have tests of final exams involving their instrument coming up soon," said Marc Lovicott of the UW-Madison Police Department.
The director of UW's School of Music says the department is doing everything it can to support the students, including loaning them instruments.
