A Harvard University graduate student was asked to look for another apartment by her landlord after roommates intruded on the student’s room and found guns.
The roommates searched 24-year-old Leyla Pirnie’s drawers, closet and under the bed for the guns, The Washington Free Beacon reported Friday.
“When I asked them why they were in my room to begin with, they each came up with completely contradicting stories (none of which made any sense), but one comment struck me in particular: ‘We saw that you had a [Make America Great Again] hat and come on, you’re from Alabama … so we just kind of assumed that you had something,’” Pirnie said, according to the Beacon’s report. “I asked why they didn’t just call me and ask me before intruding. One of the girls responded that fear took over her body and she felt compelled to search my room until she found proof … I cannot make this up.”
One of the roommates emailed landlord Dave Lewis after finding the guns and expressing discomfort, according to the Beacon.
