MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) — An Atlanta-area family says they returned home from holiday travel to find someone else living in their house.
WSB-TV quotes Janice Henson as saying the key wouldn’t turn when they returned Wednesday. A man who came to the door told her to leave and said it was his home now. She called police.
Cobb County police say 26-year-old Nathaniel Jacob Nuckols threatened to shoot at officers and was arrested after a five-hour standoff. A SWAT team eventually rammed the front door down. They sent a robot to locate him, but found no weapon.
Henson says the drawers had been emptied, family photos were moved and their food was gone.
