Albany -- It's not the Christmas she expected. An Albany woman's self-storage unit is ransacked and clear of all her valuables by thieves. Tundra Roberts found out Saturday morning, the same day she was supposed to pack and move into her new apartment.
It was thousands of dollars worth of household items, a living room set, bedroom set, and Christmas gifts for her two daughters. All of it in storage and now all gone.
Police don't have much to go on. They believe whoever did break open the locks was someone that Roberts most likely knew, but Roberts says she doesn't know anyone who would do something like this to her.
The last time Tundra Roberts came to her storage unit was October 7th to drop off Christmas gifts for her daughters. When she returned this time, she found broken padlocks left in a drain nearby and nearly nothing inside.
"I've been using this storage since 2001, I've never had a problem. So I come check my storage, my furniture is gone, my living room set, all my kids Christmas is gone. The managers is showing no concern, like he don't care," said Tundra Roberts.
She says she had to call the police herself to report the incident. The reason she uses Gillionville Storage is because management told her they patrol the units, lock it up at night, and have 24 hour surveillance. But those security measures weren't enough to keep her belongings safe.
It was supposed to be moving day for Roberts and her two daughters, but this is all that was left in her storage unit, a few toys and a toilet plunger. But furniture, Christmas gifts, and pictures of her and her family are all gone.
"Everything I worked for is gone. It's hard, and you come out here it's Christmas Monday, my kids don't have no toys, all their stuff was in here, everything. My living room set, my bedroom set," said Roberts.
Police found no evidence of forced entry into the storage unit complex. They took fingerprints and were told by management the surveillance video would be available Tuesday.
"A whole house gone, everything missing," said Roberts.
Roberts planned to be in her new apartment with toys for her newborn and four-year-old daughter for Christmas. Now, the only gifts she wants this holiday are answers.
Roberts says she pays $90 a month to store her belongings in what's supposed to be a safe and secure place.
Officers suggest, if you use storage units, take accurate inventory of all of your belongings. That includes writing down any serial numbers. Also investigate past incidents at the storage unit youre considering to see how safe it is.
