GOBLE, Ore. (KOIN) — There’s new trouble on the horizon for a woman whose home was destroyed by a tree last week.
Charity Spaulding’s home was flattened during the wind storms that wreaked havoc across the state on December 21. On Christmas Day, the house was broken into and $5,000 worth of belongings were stolen.
“It’s heartbreaking. To hit you when you’re down, I don’t know what else to say, I’m at a loss,” Spaulding told KOIN 6 News.
She doesn’t want to reveal what the stolen items are, but says that they’re marked — they have specific coloring — and they relate to cars.
Police have taken a report and are the lookout for the items.
For now, Spaulding is sleeping on the floor at her mom’s house trying to get back on her feet.
If there’s light at the end of the tunnel for Spaulding, it’s her conviction that bad things always come in three’s — and she’s now at her limit.
