U-Haul stolen in Everett from woman traveling to Alaska

A 39-year-old woman traveling cross-country from Illinois to Alaska for a new job says she lost all her possessions when someone stole her U-Haul truck and her minivan from the parking lot of an Everett motel.

The U-Haul truck and minivan were found in Lynwood Friday afternoon, the Everett Police Department said, though it’s unclear whether there was anything left in the U-Haul.

KOMO-TV reports that Kristen Shaulis had planned to stay just one night at a Best Western motel but came out to the parking lot Thursday morning to find the truck and vehicle had vanished. She’s moving to Alaska for a nursing job.

Police spokesman Aaron Snell says surveillance video shows a dark Jeep Commander driving up to the U-Haul shortly before 7 a.m. Thursday. Someone gets out of the passenger side, opens the U-Haul door and drives off. The minivan was on a car trailer attached to the 14-foot box truck.

Shaulis was left with a few clothes and her two dogs.
