McDOWELL COUNTY, N.C. -- The McDowell County Sheriff's Office is looking for a truck suspected of breaking into eight storage units at the Economy Mini Storage in Marion, N.C.
One of the units had $21,000 worth of NASCAR memorabilia.
The owner of the collection, 70-year-old Vietnam veteran Clifford Harris, says he's heartbroken.
He says the insurance will replace it for $16,000 but to him its priceless.
"I was a Dale Earnhardt fan. I like Dale Earnhardt," said Harris. "His boy retired a few weeks ago, and then I got it all stolen but I sure would like to have it back."
The car involved in the theft is described as a light colored Ford from the late 1990s to the early 2000s.
The whole collection, including care and figurines, were still in thet original packaging.
