Vancouver Police Investigate Theft Of Unique Furniture

Vancouver Police are asking for the public’s help to locate two chairs, valued at about $40,000 each, taken during a break-in to a furniture store in Coal Harbour last month.

Just after 3 a.m. on May 13, thieves broke into Lloyd Bruce Home Collections and stole two arm chairs. The thieves left in a white, Ford F150 pickup truck. The chairs are described as having gold, serpent arms and are believed to be the only two of their kind in Canada.  

One male suspect has a slim build and was wearing white runners, blue jeans, a white belt, dark hoody, baseball cap, and gloves. The other male suspect has a medium build and was wearing dark pants, dark sneakers with white laces, a dark hoody jacket and a baseball hat.

“Based on the information learned so far, it’s obvious that the suspects targeted this particular furniture store to specifically steal the two arm chairs,” says Sergeant Jason Robillard, Vancouver Police. “We are hopeful that someone will recognize these unique chairs and call investigators.”

Anyone with information about this break-in or the location of the arm chairs is asked to call the VPD’s Property Crime Unit at 604-717-0610 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
