Odd-sized wedding gowns stolen
LINCOLN, Neb. -- Jennifer Schultz-Hurt can't understand it. Neither can Lincoln police.
Why would someone steal 75 wedding gowns from Schultz-Hurt's store?
Sometime between 6 p.m. Monday and 10 a.m. Tuesday, the gowns, valued at $37,500, were taken from the Bridal Gown Outlet, police said.
Schultz-Hurt said neither money nor jewelry went missing. The burglars also left behind the standard, more popular dress sizes, Schultz-Hurt said. Taken were mainly sizes in the 1 to 2 range, as well as several 22-plus sizes.
It's the second time the store has been burglarized since it opened in 1992.
On Sept. 3, 2002, about $5,000 in money and jewelry was taken, Schultz-Hurt said.
"We are having a security system put in here for sure," she said.
