Man arrested for renting out house that was already occupied

Imagine coming home to find a family living in your apartment.  That’s what happened to a Long Island resident earlier this month.

According to The Washington Post, Gregory Garvin was arrested October 8 for posing as a real estate agent and renting out a house.  He was charged with grand larceny and fraud.

The Long Island, NY family believed they were getting a good deal when Garvin showed them a rental house that was going for $1,000 a month.  Garvin collected a $1,000 security deposit from the couple, who lived in the house for two weeks until the real owner showed up and asked what they were doing there.
