Port Chester woman sues storage company

Posted: Updated:
PORT CHESTER -

A woman in Port Chester wants answers after she says some of her belongings are missing from a storage unit she rented.

After spending four years living with family members, Marie Nieves is finally moving her family into their own apartment in Port Chester.

Nieves stored her belongings at a business formally called Runge Moving and Storage, but is now known as "Let’s Make a Deal." She says some of her belongings, including a $1,200 laptop and TV, are gone. "It was the computer with all of my son’s pictures stored on it, memories from when he was first born," says Nieves.

Some other items were broken and covered in filth, according to Nieves.

Nieves said she spent nearly $3,000 storing her items for four years and is disappointed with the new owners’ reaction to her complaints. "He's saying he is not the one to be blamed, but he bought the building, he took over the business so who is responsible?"

Monday, Nieves filed a small claim against both the old and new storage business at the Yonkers city court for $5,000.

A man who answered a phone number left on Let’s Make a Deal’s voicemail didn't identify himself, but told News 12 he isn't responsible for Nieves’ damaged and missing property.

Nieves says she expects the issue to be in court in late November.
