House ransacked after being mistaken for site of estate sale

Posted: Updated:
LONGMONT, Colo. -

(AP) - A Colorado woman says her house was ransacked by people who mistakenly thought it was the site of an estate sale.
  
The Daily Camera reports Mary Andrews says she left her Longmont home unlocked and came back Friday morning to find people taking items from her house.
  
Longmont police told Andrews it was a "very, very bad misunderstanding."
  
Andrews says a house just a few doors down was having an estate sale, and somehow someone got into her house and began spreading the rumor that an estate sale was going on there and that everything was free.
  
Despite the mix-up, Andrews says people should have found something odd about an estate sale where everything was being given away at no cost.
  
Police say they have closed the case because they do not have any suspect leads.
  
Longmont is about an hour north of Denver.
