PORTLAND, Ore., Aug. 27 (UPI) -- An Oregon college freshman's sports utility vehicle packed with all of his belongings was stolen the day he was to move into his dormitory room, police say.

Jackson Honer-Hollstien drove from his small hometown in central California to attend college at Concordia University in Portland, Ore., on Wednesday, The (Portland) Oregonian reported.

When he woke up on move-in day Thursday, he discovered his white 1997 Toyota 4Runner had been stolen from the parking lot of the motel he stayed in over night.

"It's the worst thing," Honer-Hollstien, 18, said. "I literally don't know how to feel."

Among his stolen belongings were his Cannon T2I camera, downhill Armada skis and a new Kindle 3G.
