Gonzaga Students Return After Break To Find Apartment Ransacked: 'They Just Trashed Our House And Robbed Us'

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. - Returning to school most students worry about future exams and the stress that goes along with the beginning of the semester. Most students don't have to worry about their apartment getting broken into. Unfortunately that was the case for a few Gonzaga students who returned back to their place after winter break to find it ransacked.  

"They just trashed our house and robbed us," said  Muzeen Ismath, a Gonzaga student. "They took our TV, fridge, mini fridges, multiple microwaves, stereos, thousands of dollars in items for sure.  

Karly Kurata also had her property stolen.  

"They took our freezer, they took our upstairs TV, but not downstairs TV. All of our jewelry, nail polish, cleaning supplies, really anything that they could find," Kurata said.  

Kurata said most of the girls she lives with are seniors so they don't plan to replace all of the stolen property, they are just now forced to live with less. Spokane Police Spokeswoman Jennifer DeRuwe said that it is important for students to do their best to leave their place so it looks as though someone is still home. She said there are a number of ways that you can do that including leaving a light on or by keeping the radio turned up. 

Spokane Police say they are working with campus security to set up neighborhood watch groups when students leave campus for summer or winter break.
