VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -

Police are searching for Fox 12's Most Wanted who stole a truck filled with bounce houses used for children's birthday parties in Vancouver.

My PlayCenter - Party Rentals has a birthday party booked for Tuesday night, but now the owner, Igor Chmut, is scrambling to use some back-up bounce houses, and also find a way to transport them to the party.

Clark County deputies are looking for the thieves who stole the box truck around 2 a.m. Tuesday on Northeast 84th Street in Vancouver.

The box truck is a white Ford E-450 with license plate C75784F, and it had five bounce houses inside. Chmut said the bounce houses are worth nearly $2,000 each.

Chmut told Fox 12 this is the first year he has gone full-time with the business that he said is all about making kids happy.

"We still have other units. We'll substitute, we'll make it work. I mean, it's a kids birthday party. You can't tell kids no."

Deputies said in all it's a theft valued at about $15,000. Investigators are now trying to figure out if any neighbors in the area have surveillance video that might help them track down a suspect.

If you know anything about the theft, please call the Clark County Sheriff's Office.
