Henderson Family's Belongings Stolen From Storage, Urging Public's Help

They are the images that became one family's worst nightmare.

Last Saturday, The Lamb's discovered their storage unit was broken into, leaving them with the mere clothes on their backs.

"I was sick to my stomach. I'm still sick to my stomach," says Amanda Lamb.

Just some of what was taken from them were pieces of one of a kind furniture: dining table set, bar stools, bedroom set. All custom made in Mexico.

"Pretty unique stuff," says Jeff Lamb. "It would have fit pretty well out here in the East Texas pines."

Even heirlooms were taken like a Singer sewing machine bought by Amanda's great-grandmother in the early 1900's.

"A chest of drawers my great grandfather built [was stolen]. The stuff you can't replace hurts the most," says Amanda crying.

It was after the theft the Lamb's realized a space in the ceiling of the vacant storage unit next to their's.

They believe someone with bad intentions was able to look from above and see their stuff.

We contacted Highway 79 Storage and learned one of the owner's sons was using that vacant unit.

But apparently he's not welcome in the family, and as soon as they learned he was there he was kicked out.

But police say there are no suspects, although it's still very early in the investigation.

"[We] just wish we could have our stuff back, I wish we never went through this," says Amanda.

This family is hoping someone out there recognizes what's rightfully theirs... And pray the thief or thieves do what's right.

"Change your ways man. Start by letting us know where our stuff's at, what you did with it," says Jeff.

The Lamb's stuff has been in storage for a couple of months while their home is being built.

Although they discovered the theft Saturday, they believe it happened a couple weeks before then.

If you recognize any of their belongings from this story call the City of Henderson Police Department.
