Loida Mar was just having breakfast when her backpack was stolen from the car
KOIN, Oregon — Last week, Roy Damar had breakfast with a friend in Denny’s, North Portland. Someone broke into her friend’s car and stole Loida’s backpack. There was no money in the backpack, but her car and house keys were with a mail piece with her home address.
One mother, Loida, who has two jobs, hurried home with a feeling of depression. Her feeling of sinking turned out to be accurate. Her car was gone and her house was torn. The thief or thief took everything of value.
“When I came to this country, we didn’t have anything, so they just came to my house, came to my personal space and threw my belongings everywhere, they It doesn’t matter to me, “she told KOIN6 News. “For me, that’s all.”
One of her jobs is Marquis Piedmont, Northeast Portland Life Support and Rehabilitation Facility. Her colleague there said that KOIN 6 News Loyda has a bright and positive energy. They said it was sad that this happened to everyone, but it was catastrophic that it happened to her.
“When Roida enters the room, the inhabitants smile, wave and call her,” said her colleague and diet manager Sandra Finn.
Loida called the Portland police and submitted a report. A few days later, they found her car completely stripped inside and out in a remote area of Gresham.
She had just paid off her car. Her colleague has set up GoFundMe to help her recover. They said irreplaceable sentimental items were stolen, but they want to help the best way they can.
“There is trauma in the house,” she said. “I’ve changed my house keys so far, but I’m wondering if those people will come back.”
She has two messages. The first is for those who have done this.
“I want them to look inside me and find what I’m missing. I know more people are being detained by the pandemic, but that’s what you want others to do. It does not mean that you are allowed to do, “Roida said. “So I really hope they can make that effort in their lives.”
Her other message is to everyone else.
“This isn’t just a restaurant. It may be in a church, it may be everywhere. Things seem to be out of control. So I want more people to be on the alert. That way, it won’t happen to them. “
