EVERETT — A woman’s life is in turmoil after thieves stole a moving truck full of her possessions outside of an Everett Best Western Hotel Wednesday night. Now, police are hoping the public can help in tracking down the suspects.
Everett police said a 39-year-old woman moving from Illinois to Alaska for a new job stopped last night at an Everett Best Western Hotel in the 2800 block of Pacific Avenue. After spending the night, she went outside to find her U-Haul, car dolly and all worldly possessions stolen.
