BUFFALO, N.Y. (WCCO) – A local music star is suffering a big loss while on the road.

According to Doomtree.net, the tour van of rapper and singer Dessa was burglarized Friday night, with thieves stealing crucial equipment for their shows.

The singer/songwriter says her band lost computers, camera gear, merchandise and cash. It happened during a tour stop in Buffalo, N.Y.

As police search for the stolen gear, Dessa started a fundraising page to replace those items. Fans have already contributed more than $25,000 as of Saturday morning.

Despite the loss, Dessa says the tour will continue.
