Renter steals items totaling $5,000 after eviction



FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — A tenant reportedly stole $5,000 worth of items from a rental home after being evicted.

The homeowner said the tenant had been evicted in September 2016 and took numerous items against the homeowner’s will. The homeowner said she owned all the property and left the house partially furnished while the tenant leased the home.

There apparently was never any written or verbal agreement for the tenant to remove any property from the rental home.

The stolen items included a washer and dryer set, numerous pieces of furniture and decorations.

The homeowner has pictures of the house before the tenant moved in and after. The deputy was able to see that items had been taken.

An investigation is ongoing.
