Vancouver police are asking for the public’s help locating two chairs, valued at around $80,000, stolen last month during a break-in at a Coal Harbour furniture store.

Just after 3 a.m. on May 13, thieves broke into Lloyd Bruce Home Collections and stole two arm chairs. The suspects left in a white Ford F150 pickup truck.

The chairs, which are valued at around $40,000 each, are described as having gold serpent arms and are believed to be the only two of their kind in Canada.

“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,” said media relations officer Sgt. Jason Robillard. “We are hoping that someone will recognize these unique chairs and call investigators.”

Police are looking for two male suspects. One is described as having a slim build and was wearing white runners, blue jeans, a white belt, dark hoody, baseball cap and gloves. The other suspect has a medium build and was wearing dark pants, dark sneakers with white laces, a dark hooded jacket and a baseball hat.

Anyone with information about this break-in, or the location of the arm chairs, is asked to call investigators at 604-717-0610 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
