One belongs to the Saskatoon Brass Band and Raney believes it was made in the 1950s.

The other brass instrument is his personal tuba which he said is worth over $15,000. However, he wants the thief to know there isn’t much of resale value.

“If someone wants to try to sell it to others, there are not that many people to buy them at all and I don’t know what a person who doesn’t play the tuba would want to do with one,” Raney said.
