Two classic cars were swiped from a storage facility in Colorado Springs, CO, along with other valuables.

According to a report from KRDO, the thieves exploited an unlocked storage unit. Once inside, they broke through the plywood walls into other storage units in the same block, pilfering whatever they wanted. 

Customers whose stuff was stolen told KRDO they weren’t notified by the storage facility owners about the break-in. Those same customers said there were other security-related issues, like the gates and cameras not working properly.

One man's 1956 Chrysler Imperial, which he estimated to be worth $35,000, was stolen in February but he didn’t learn about it until late March. He thought his classic car was just fine that whole time and so didn’t file a police report. The thieves also took a box of letters his father wrote to his mother while serving in the Vietnam War.

Another woman lost her grandmother’s 1964 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia along with other heirlooms. In total, she estimated the losses to be about $30,000. Like the others, she said she wasn’t notified of the break-in and found out weeks later.
