SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. -

Karina Jordan went to check on her home on East Fairview last week and noticed some familiar items for sale next door at her neighbor's house. Jordan's house is in foreclosure but she still has a couple of months to clear out her belongings. Karina says the neighbor told her the stuff was given to her by a company who showed up last week to clean out the house and asked if she wanted anything from the garage.

In an interview with our partners at The Spokesman Review, the owner of that company says that's not true. He claims his crew was hired by a property management company to haul away debris, clean out the fridge and put a lock box on the door. He says his crew didn't give anyone access to the house. 

The Spokane Valley Police Department is now investigating what happened. Jordan filed a report and the neighbor selling the items also filed a report claiming harassment from another neighbor. 

Now the focus for Jordan has turned to getting her things back that were sold. She is hoping someone will see the pictures above and allow her to buy them back. Among the items she is looking for are a cedar hope chest, a school desk that was hers as a child, and a Goofy bank. If you happened to buy these items or know who did, please contact our reporter Katie Chen and she will help get you in touch with Karina.

Katie will have an update on the pseudo-scavenger hunt for Karina's items tonight on KHQ Local News at 5.
