Thieves break into Edmonton Airbnb, do laundry and leave note for guests


A Vancouver Island couple had a bizarre experience in a downtown Edmonton Airbnb earlier this week.

Rod and Kat Gordon, who went out Sunday after dropping off their luggage, came back to the suite to find the lights on and heavy metal music blaring.

They thought there might have been a double booking, then saw that their luggage had been unpacked.

Kat Gordon says the people who broke in also washed their clothes, left a bowl of cigarettes and signed a note saying, ``We are here! Today is the best day of the rest of our lives!''

She says it was one of their worst days.

The Gordons reported the break-in to police and the building's security, who found a surveillance image of potential suspects wearing the couple's clothes.
