Stolen Home

By  | 

A Georgia family is trying to figure out why a woman moved into their home while they were away on vacation.

Beverly Mitchell of the Atlanta suburb of Douglasville says she returned from two weeks in Greece to find that her personal belongings, including clothes, furniture and dishes, had been removed. She says most of the carpet had also been taken out, and the house had been redecorated.

Sheriff's deputies found Beverly Valentine in a bathroom and charged her with burglary. Police say Valentine told them she used a shovel to break into the house.

Mitchell says the woman had the electricity switched over to her name and also moved in a washer and dryer.
