Helena police are asking for the public's help in finding brand new La-Z-Boy furniture that was stolen while still in their boxes, awaiting transport.
The furniture was stolen from semi-trailers parked at Watkins Shepard while awaiting shipment.
Thieves broke the seal on the trailer door and hauled the furniture away a piece at a time.
Helena Police Chief Troy McGee said, "Three La-Z-Boy sofas, a La-Z-Boy chair, five various type tables that go in living rooms, a bench, and valued at about $6,100."
The trucking company believes thieves may have taken the furniture sometime between late January and February 14th.
If you have any information about this crime or others, you are asked to contact Helena Police or Crimestoppers.
