2 men arrested for trying to reclaim home in Arizona
PRESCOTT, Ariz. -- Two men in northern Arizona are in custody for allegedly trying to reclaim a foreclosed home outside Prescott and removing all of the legal owner's property.
Yavapai County Sheriff's officials say 57-year-old Brent Ten Pas and 60-year-old Steve Armstrong are being held on suspicion of theft, burglary and criminal damage.
They say the men allegedly put up signs reading ``Private Property/No Trespassing'' around the home in Groom Creek.
The homeowner purchased the home from a bank in August 2012, furnished it and was using it as a secondary residence.
Authorities say Ten Pas and Armstrong allegedly boarded up the house, installed a security camera, changed the locks and placed the homeowner's belongings in a Prescott Valley storage unit.
Sheriff's officials didn't immediately know Monday if either suspect had an attorney.
