A rather bizarre and extra crime took place in Vancouver recently. According to a recent police report, $80,000 armchairs were stolen from a Vancouver furniture store. The police are now actively looking for the people responsible.
According to the Vancouver police report released today on Tuesday, a break-in to a furniture store took place last month at a store in Coal Harbour. At around 3 AM on May 13, thieves broke into the Lloyd Bruce Home Collection and stole two armchairs.
The armchairs have an incredibly unique design as the arms are large gold serpents. Apparently, these arms alone are worth $40,000 each, meaning the people got away with stealing $80,000 worth!
Not only are they expensive, but these chairs are also believed to be the only pair of their kind in Canada – which means pawning these serpents off might be a little difficult as they are incredibly recognizable.
Police are now turning to the public to help locate the people responsible as the chairs were stolen over a month ago. The police report states that the thieves were using a white, Ford F150 pick-up truck during their crime.
One of the males is described as having a slim build. He was wearing white runners, blue jeans, a white belt, dark hoodie, a baseball hat, and gloves at the time.
The other is described as having a medium build and was wearing dark sneakers with white laces, dark pants, a dark hoody jacket, and a baseball hat.
Police believe that this was a targeted attack and the thieves chose this particular furniture store for the purpose of stealing the armchairs.
Since the incident has been posted online by police on Tuesday, the Internet has been reacting. Most of the reactions are hilarious, with many people poking fun at the suspects.
Others are concerned about the price of the chair - stating that is it worth more than their annual income.
Due to the uniqueness of the chairs, Vancouver police are hoping that someone will be able to recognize them. Until then, the thieves may be sitting like kings in their pair of incredibly expensive chairs.
