A young mother and her two children had all of their possessions stolen during a move from Vancouver to Gresham.
According to the Gresham Police Department, the van was stolen while parked along Southeast Palmquist Road sometime between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. Sunday to Monday, April 24-25. The U-Haul is a 15-foot box van with Arizona plate AH29960.
The woman, whose children are 2-years and 10-months old, reported there was about $20,000 in items within the U-Haul, including nearly all of their clothing, furniture and household goods for a two-bedroom apartment.
This is the third time this year that a U-Haul van has been stolen in East Multnomah County — the first two occurred while the vehicles were parked overnight at Troutdale motels.
