Hawthorne, CA – the theft of A hard disk drive that contains more than 1 million dollars of music owned by Derek "MixedByAli" Ali, TDE in house sound engineer, has been recovered by the authorities in Hawthorne, California, according to the newspaper the los Angeles Daily News.
The theft occurred when two men burst into Ali's car out of the Equinox South Bay gym on Rosecrans Avenue, on the 7th of December. The hard drive was later recovered after the arrest of 23-year Jonjairo Espinoza, whose fingerprint was found at the door of Ali of the BMW i8.
