Baltimore Co. Man Says Strangers Moved Into His Home, Claiming They Rented It On Craigslist

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — In an online deal gone wrong, a Baltimore County contractor says strangers moved into his property, but now he has to go to court before he can get them out.

The renters say they have a right to be there after they made an agreement with someone on Craigslist.

Ava-joye Burnett reports why police say they cannot evict the people, even though the homeowner says he has no idea who they are.

The contractor says he was out of town and when he returned to the house in Pikesville, the locks had been changed and strangers had settled in.
