GLENWOOD SPRINGS – Garfield County Sheriff Lou Vallario said burglars must have used a moving truck to steal the amount of loot they burgled from a house on Wednesday.

The unidentified owner of a house on County Road 117, also called Four Mile Road, was shy about $27,000 worth of household items when he returned home from work Wednesday.

“It happened between 6:45 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.,” Vallario said. “He came home and found a broken window in the front door.”

The 32 stolen items include tools, a handgun, five rifles, a riding lawnmower, a big-screen TV, a living room set that includes a couch, a loveseat and a recliner, an office chair, pictures, a stereo system and a computer.

Vallario said the sheriff’s office is investigating, but they have few clues in the burglary.

“We’re investigating, and we’ll notify all the pawn shops,” he said.
