SAN ANTONIO – After a lifetime of collecting memorabilia worth between $20,000 and $30,000 – from Star Wars to Transformers to Marvel to Hot Wheels, a San Antonio man says thieves broke into its storage unit with several others in a local installation.
In July, Life Storage, located near Tezel Road, suffered three burglaries.
The man, who wished to remain anonymous, shared his experience with KSAT about the company that allowed the burglary and ransacking of his storage box.
The man said the warehouse failed to notify him of the theft and told him the theft had taken place weeks before notifying him. For liability reasons, the company did not provide an exact date.
San Antonio PD detectives told the victim they believe the burglars cut the wire mesh at the top of the unit, jumped in and unlocked it from the inside.
The man is now offering a $500 reward for any information provided to authorities that leads to the variety of memories he has collected over the years.
“It was the work of a lifetime. It was just overwhelming. They might be toys for people, but I took my time just picking up the s***, man,” he said.
“It was something that I really loved having, and I dreamed of having all of it in my house one day,” the victim continued.
KSAT has made efforts to contact Life Storages head office, but has yet to receive a response.
This matter remains under investigation by SAPD.
