A resident of the 500 block of Broad Meadows Boulevard reported thousands of dollars in property damage after he asked a woman to leave his home Sept. 17. 

The man told Columbus police he had allowed the suspect to move into his apartment, but asked her to leave after seeing how “disrupted” her children were. However, she refused to leave, reports said. 

The victim said he moved some of the woman’s property out, and the woman responded by destroying “all the furniture and appliances” in the home, causing $10,000 damage, according to reports.  

The man also said the woman stole several items, including a TV worth $1,000 and $4,000 worth of collector plates.
