Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' five stolen guitars have been recovered by police.

The instruments, which were stolen from the band's rehearsal space in Culver City, Los Angeles last week, included Petty's 1967 blonde Rickenbacker, a Fender Broadcaster belonging to bassist Ron Blair and a Dussenberg belonging to Petty's collaborator Mike Campbell.

TMZ reports that a man has been arrested in conjunction with the robbery and that the guitars have not yet been returned to the band.

It was revealed this weekend that Petty had offered a $7,500 (£4,731) reward for any information about the guitars' whereabouts.

The theft happened while the band were in final rehearsals for their upcoming US tour, which opens today (April 18) in Broomfield, Colorado.

The European leg of the tour begins on June 7 in Dublin. The band will also headline this year's Isle of Wight festival.
