“I came home yesterday afternoon to find my landlord and two officers at my house. I was informed that I could go in my house that I am renting and get my stuff but could not return to the house or I would be arrested for trespassing.
I told the officers I had a lease agreement and this was an illegal eviction. The landlord lied stated I did not sign a lease and he wanted me gone. My daughter went in the house looking for the lease and couldn’t find it.
The landlord removed personal property from my home before I arrived. A filing box with important documents in it like birth certificates, soc.sec . Cards, rent receipts, my lease agreement, other bills, and bank information. A Dell Laptop, A pistol, THE A/C THERMOSTAT so I can’t turn on the air.
I called justice court and explained the situation to them and what was happening they informed me that it was an illegal eviction that they had spoke with Judge Simpson and she informed the Chief of Police as well that he must open the door immediately and let me in or he would have a warrant issued for his arrest Captain Grace was given the information as well by Justice court.
I gave the officers his number he was parked a couple houses down from mine watching the entire time and drove down here. I started recording from that point because the officers had already told me i had to leave earlier or id go to jail. I was protecting myself and to make sure the officers done their jobs. On the video I accidentally called the officer a deputy.
He does not work for The sheriff’s department but for Greenville Police Department…”
