New Lecturer at Humboldt State Had U-Haul Full of Belongings Stolen
A new lecturer for Humboldt State University moving here from Oakland had the U-Haul containing most of her belongings including priceless family heirloom musical instruments stolen while she was still in Oakland.
According to a report by ABC’s Channel 7 News, Jennifer Trowbridge had parked the vehicle on August 10 in front of her business.
Along with the truck, thieves got away with several guitars, a couple of banjos, a bass, clothes, and text books.
“The instruments are completely irreplaceable. I mean three of them were 100 years old. They were from my family. They don’t have a big monetary value, but they have an enormous sentimental value,” she told ABC7 News.
Hopefully, Humboldt County residents will show a warm welcome Trowbridge to help make up for the traumatic experience.
