ALPHARETTA, Ga. (CBS Atlanta) – Georgia authorities bust a real estate agent after she moved her family into a vacant house.
Milton police charged 37-year-old Kimberlie Arnold of Alpharetta Realtor with burglary and theft of services after the listing realtor found the mother of three’s personal belongings inside the home. Police say she moved into the home without the owner’s permission.
A police report states that Arnold had inquired about renting the property, but was brushed off by the owner. Police say that is when she stole a key from the home’s lockbox and moved into the two-story brick townhouse.
Investigators believe she has lived there for several weeks.
Arnold claims she was tricked by somebody into moving there. She reportedly thought she had an agreement to live in the home.
According to the Fulton County Jail website, Arnold posted bond.
