One property owner faced a terrifying encounter on his own property when gun-wielding squatters put his life at risk. After calling the police, the outcome was the opposite of what you’d expect!
A Shocking Encounter Leads to Tragedy
In suburban Atlanta, a homeowner’s ordinary check-up on his property took a disturbing turn.
Danger Where You Least Expect It
After the departure of a previous tenant, Tim Arko found himself facing a dangerous situation on the driveway of his house.
As Arko pulled into his driveway, he was met with a shocking sight: a stranger, armed and hostile, waving a gun in his face.
Making a Run for It
He recounted his response, saying, “I just jumped the fence and ran. I didn’t know what else to do.”
Arko described what he stumbled upon after returning to the house, stating, “I didn’t walk in on a family eating dinner. I walked in on weapons, a prostitute, a bunch of dogs in the back, my fence broken down.”
From Victim to Accused
In a bizarre turn of events, Arko’s decision to dial 911 and report the intrusion led to a shocking outcome.
Cuffed and Jailed
Instead of receiving assistance, he found himself in handcuffs and under arrest!
A Web of Lies
He shared his astonishment, “They told the police that I was a home invader and that it was their home. And so I ended up being arrested and detained.”
His 6-Month Struggle
Arko has been fighting in court to evict the squatters, who have continued to reside in his house for six months.
A Tearful Tragedy
Amid this legal battle, two tragic deaths have occurred within the residence.
More Shocking Setbacks
While grappling with the squatter issue, Arko faced yet another setback as code enforcement cited him for not maintaining the property he was legally unable to access.
A Glimmer of Hope?
He revealed that he hopes for a full eviction in one month, “I have been informed by marshals that they are hoping for a September eviction.”
A Broken System
Arko blames the system, saying, “I feel like it’s very heavily weighted towards these trespassers and criminals, not people that got duped.”
