SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A Murray couple are suing a moving company, claiming it did not conduct background checks on two employees who stole from them during a January move.
The Deseret News reports the couple's 3rd District Court lawsuit, filed Wednesday, contends the men were convicted of
assault, robbery and drug charges.
The lawsuit alleges the couple contacted Two Men and a Truck International when they realized their possessions were missing after unpacking, but the moving company said the employees denied wrongdoing and they couldn't do anything about it.
The company based in Lansing, Mich., declined to comment.
The lawsuit claims the men stole several items, including pain medication and a first edition of the book "Where the Wild Things Are," which was signed by its author, Maurice Sendak, and valued at $35,750.
