A guitar worth more than $5,000 belonging to a member of George Clinton's P-Funk All Stars was recovered, and an arrest warrant has been issued for Memphis man Neika Lightfoot in connection with the theft.

The guitar went missing while the All Stars were performing last August at Shelby Farms. Someone posing as a security guard entered the band's tour bus and stole the guitar. It was recently recovered in Atlanta, where it had been sold to a Guitar Center store. The guitar was located there thanks to a Google search by a friend of the victim.

Authorities have determined Lightfoot, 35, was connected to the theft. The Shelby County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help in locating Lightfoot. The guitar has been returned to its owner, Shaunna Hall.

(Note: Hall is also a founding member of '90s alt-rocker band 4 Non Blondes).
