A small business in Vermilion is calling out the thieves that stole from them.

The owners of Huggy's Social House told NewsChannel5 someone swiped their outdoor furniture over the weekend. 

Vermilion locals call the restaurant a longtime favorite. 

"I have friends that I meet almost every morning," Molly Romp said. 

"I come here a good five days a week," said Jim Williams. 

And he can't believe someone would steal from the restaurant.

"That's horrible. I couldn't believe that," he said.

Huggy's co-owner, Mark McDowell, said in this quiet little town, he really can't believe it either. 

"We try to make a nice atmosphere out here, a place for people to sit and relax by the water. This messes that up quite a bit," he said.

Huggy's put the furniture thief on blast. They're offering a reward on their sign, that many in this town glance at every day. 

Locals, sharing messages of their own.

"Bring it back! Bring it back," Jim Williams said.

"Bring it back. We need it," Molly Romp added.
