SALT LAKE CITY -- Dozens of fur coats worth up to $10,000 each have been reported missing from a Salt Lake City cleaning store.

Salt Lake Cleaning & Leather says 44 fur coats worth $2,000 to $10,000 each were found missing early Tuesday morning.

Tara Lindorf, who works at the business, says she got the call at 3 a.m.

"The security alarm company called and said there was motion detectors going off," Lindorf said.

She says she knew it was serious when she saw broken coat hangers lying around in the parking lot.

"Then I saw the door for the boiler room, where they'd gotten in at," she said.

Lindorf says the coats were taken in a period of about 10 minutes, despite being heavy and hard to transport.

"I know one person couldn't do it by themselves," Lindorf said. "There had to be at least two."

Salt Lake City police say they don't have any information on possible suspects and are asking for the public's help. Police say the coats could show up at regional furriers or local second-hand stores, antique dealers and pawnshops.
