Thieves broke into the building which houses the Alice Cooper Archives on Tuesday and took a number of original vinyl records and a sculpture featured on the cover of the star's 1991 album Hey Stoopid.
The burglars also stole a jacket worn by the rocker during an appearance in 1992 movie Wayne's World, and a message posted on Cooper's official website asks fans to keep an eye out for anyone trying to sell the unique piece.
The message reads: "The storage facility in Los Angeles which houses the Alice Cooper Archives was broken into on March 27, along with three other storage units. A police report has been filed... With multiple units broken into, we don't believe Alice's Archives was specifically targeted. If anyone sees anything suspicious or hears anything about these stolen items - especially on the internet or in Los Angeles - please let us know...
"The jacket in question is in fact the John Richmond jacket, better known as the one worn in Wayne's World. It's one of a kind, and is unmistakable. If you see anyone selling it, please write to us immediately!"
