MISSOULA- The family of a Stevensville teenager who had a leg amputated after a bone cancer diagnosis is now asking the community for help finding the suspect who broke into their fireworks stand and stole hundreds of dollars worth of product.
Tyler Hennes' family is running a fireworks stand near the Wye West Casino in Missoula. They say someone broke into their stand Tuesday night and stole several family packs of fireworks, worth about $500 to $600, and they'll have to pay for the stolen product.
"Pretty much our entire profit for the 10 days that we sat out here selling fireworks was taken in one night. So, the people who took their fireworks didn't steal them from TNT, they stole them from Jenny and I and we have to pay for them," said Josh Hennes, who owns the TNT Fireworks stand.
The Missoula County Sheriff's Office is investigating the theft and if you have any information call Crimestoppers at (406) 721.4444.
