Update: Storage unit burglary “gut wrenching” for toy collector



“So, until we figured something out, we put it all in storage,” Wally Boyer said. “It’s just one of those things. Somebody got in there and, when they saw what it was, they cleaned it out.”

Other items from the old building, such as stools and other furniture, were moved to the same storage unit, Boyer said. Those things were left behind.

Fortunately the thieves didn’t get the Boyers’ entire collection of toys and comic books. Some of the more valuable items are stored in more secure locations.

As of Friday morning, the police had few leads, Gray said.

“That’s why we’re getting the message out there and looking for the public’s help,” he said.

Anyone with information about the collection should call 911 or 507-387-8780.

Here is a link to pictures of items similar to Boyer's collection.
