Thieves Make Off With History

"Karma will come into play," said Kari Glessner about getting robbed. She checked on her greenhouse last month and realized that somebody had stolen priceless furniture from her, hand crafted by her father, a retired rancher in Montana. He used old wood from a 100-year-old barn that used to stand on their Mont. property and wagon wheels used to work the ranch. (SR photo: Kathy Plonka)

A big slice of a family’s heritage is missing after thieves snatched a set of wood furniture handcrafted from the remnants of a 100-year-old Montana barn. Kari Glessner checked on her winterized greenhouse southeast of Coeur d’Alene last month and discovered missing not only an enclosed trailer, circulation fan and lawn mower, but a priceless piece of her family’s history: two rocking chairs and a doubled-sided bench. “It’s one of a kind, you know? My dad made it for me,” Glessner said/Nicole Hensley, SR. More here.

Question: Have thieves ever stolen something of irreplaceable value from you?
