GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) -- Authorities say thieves who made off with a rug and leather sofa during a smash-and-grab burglary in Grand Rapids returned less than a week later for the sofa's cushions.

Gorman's Home Furnishings was hit by furniture thieves Sunday morning, a few hours before its opening for the day.

Manager Duane Petroskey says burglars broke through the store's rear entrance windows and stole leather sofa cushions that were left behind during the previous burglary March 3.

Petroskey called the theft "pretty amazing." He declined to say how much the sofa was worth, but described it as "expensive." is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
