DURANGO, Colo. (KRQE) – Branson Reynolds developed a passion for southwest pottery in 1979. That passion, however, took a hit when he found his nearly 40-year collection of art and valuables stolen.
“They were treasures so it’s kind of heartbreaking to lose them all,” said Reynolds.
Reynolds’ valuables were taken from a storage unit. Because of this, he thinks he might have been targeted in the theft.
“I have no real insight into who did this other than obviously somebody who knew me, knew what I had because that was the only storage unit that was broken into,” explained Reynolds.
Anywhere from 20 to 30 pieces of Indian artwork and collectibles were stolen from the storage locker. Reynolds says this totaled around $4,000 at the time of purchase.
Reynolds is hoping police can track a suspect with fingerprints. He is offering a $1,000 reward to anyone who can help lead to catching the thief.
