Trash-Out Subcontractor For Now-Notorious Foreclosure Property Management Outfit Pinched For Allegedly Pilfering $42K+ From Home
In Wolcott, Connecticut, the Republican American reports:
- A Maryland man was charged Wednesday with stealing more than $42,000 worth of valuables and a handgun from a Breezy Knoll home while working for a subcontractor of a property management company, according to court documents.
The property management company, Safeguard Properties, was the focus of a recent report by the Huffington Post(1) in which a former employee claimed he had received a "constant barrage" of complaints about subcontractors breaking into homes to steal heirlooms, artwork and weapons.(2)
