Owner Of Vandalized Home Talks To KHQ

Posted: Updated:

 

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - Tuesday night KHQ had the chance to speak with the owner of a home left in shambles by two teen vandals.

Walking through and showing the damage first hand, owner Jenni Currier talked about all the work that went into remodeling her home. 

Jenni and her husband bought the 1600 square foot fixer-upper 10 years ago and had just recently put it on the market. They completely updated the home themselves with new appliances, paint, carpet, countertops and cabinets. Now, they have to start over. 

At about 3:00am Tuesday morning, two teenagers broke into the home, and completely trashed the interior. They destroyed fixtures, punched holes in walls, knocked over appliances and flooded the two-story home.

Authorities who first saw the damage Tuesday morning estimated the damage at $100,000, calling it some of the worst vandalism they have ever seen.

A nearby 16 and 17 year old were arrested and are now facing multiple charges.

A mother of a teenager herself, Jenni says the two boys that trashed her home need help.

Jenni and her husband will meet with their adjuster tomorrow, and will have to file a claim before they can fix up their home once again and get it back on the market.
