\”Hey, friends. Someone stole two of these brand new lanterns today at Electric Forest in broad daylight. They left a 30\’ ladder leaning against the tree where they cut them down. The festival ended yesterday, so the only people authorized to be on site are the workers. If you saw something, please say something. If you ever see them show up somewhere when I\’m not there, please let me know.\”
