LINCOLN, Neb. – Roughly $20,000 worth of items, including a 1930's dining set, were stolen from a storage unit in Lincoln, police said.

According to LPD, on Wednesday a 54-year-old Omaha man discovered his mother’s belongings had been stolen from a storage unit near 18th and Pioneers Boulevard.

He told police at one point he had the items, which included a 1930’s dining set and chinaware, appraised at $20,000.
