Nobody likes to get punked. Nobody! On Friday, the LA Sheriff’s Dept arrived at Mike Diamond of the Beastie Boys home after upwards of 15 surfboards, skateboards and other surf oriented gear was lifted from the outdoor storage shed of his Malibu home.

Mr D told the police he’s out thousands of dollars in boards, a few of which, were worth 1,000 dollars each. So the cops are on the hunt for the Beastie Boy’s stolen property. Will they find it? Well, that’s to be determined, in Los Angeles somebody is definitely getting stabbed or shot in an alleyway downtown, so who knows where this falls into their priorities. But, based off the how much the stolen property was worth, the heist falls under the category of grand theft. And, the thieves can claim the current title of “Malibu’s Most Wanted.”

The robbery prompted Kelly Slater to make a call out to all 1.7 million of his Insta followers: 
Please keep a lookout around LA/Malibu area (or anywhere up and down the coast by now) and send me or anyone tagged here a DM if you have any info on these boards. Someone broke into my friend’s house near Point Dume and stole around 20 boards probably knowing he was out of town. One time my boards got stolen in LA and @surfline was cool enough to feature it on the homepage and they were spotted within 12 hours. Nobody got arrested or in trouble, just wanted the boards back. #IHateThieves but I like these boards. In fact, I’d be happy to buy a couple back off whoever did it on the side
