A man is charged in the theft of a band's musical equipment, which was stolen after they played the Lollapalooza festival earlier this month.

Prosecutors say 39-year-old Juan Ocampo knew the equipment was stolen when he bought it from a flea market.

Authorities says Ocampo did not steal a van and trailer belonging to the group Portugal the Man back on August 8.

The van and trailer were found the next day, but $80,000 worth of equipment was gone.

Police are still searching for the person who sold the equipment.
