A "new" Cannon County family is asking for help in recovering more than $50,000 in personal goods.
The missing items were housed in a trailer which was stolen mid-October from its parking place at Higgins Flea Market in Woodbury.
"Everything we owned was in that trailer," said Cindy Luurs. "We just recently moved from Washington State."
The trailer and contents were valued at $50,000 but many of the stolen goods were family items that can't be replaced, she said.
Cindy and her husband, Jason, were in the process of moving the trailer to a piece of property they bought in rural Cannon County.
"The jack stand broke on our trailer, so we put a tongue lock on it and when we came back the next day the trailer was missing," Luurs said.
Luurs believes the trailer was stolen after the market closed on the 17th and before it opened on the 18th.
The couple had insurance, but it will cover only $15,000 of their loss.
She described the black, 18-foot trailer which was enclosed with fiberboard. The board wasn't painted. It had a "silvery," weathered look. There was a diamond tool box on the front of the trailer.
Other items included:
Antique maple table,
Acer laptop computer
Fishing poles and tackle boxes
Royal Albert china set
Family heirloom pocket watch
King-sized Sleep Number bed
Antique curved front dresser
Family Christmas items
It contained a variety of items ranging from an almost new Kenmore washer and dryer to African memorabilia. A handmade muzzle loader rifle with an Elk carving on the stock was taken along with Mr. Luurs' tools.
Investigating the theft is Deputy Greg Moore of the Cannon County Sheriff's Department, who has compiled a lengthy list of the stolen items as well as photographing the scene of the crime.
