Rental home trashed

Southern Telegraph - - NEWS - Rory Camp­bell

A Me­d­ina prop­erty owner is with­out a home af­ter ten­ants trashed his house while he was over­seas look­ing af­ter his sick fa­ther.

Dar­ius Mo­laee pri­vately leased his Me­d­ina house to a single mother- of- three chil­dren when he went to Ger­many to care for his fa­ther.

But when he re­turned to check the house he needed pro­tec­tive equip­ment just to step foot in­side.

“Every­thing was cov­ered in fleas, cock­roaches, food, fae­ces,” Mr Mo­laee said.

In­sur­ers have not as­sessed the house yet, fear­ing metham­phetamine lev­els in­side the home and pos­si­ble con­tam­i­na­tion. Cock­roaches still run ram­pant in the prop­erty.

“This is af­ter five times of fu­mi­ga­tion,” Mr Mo­laee said.

He said the ten­ants moved in at the end of May and by the start of Oc­to­ber they were gone.

The RSPCA con­firmed it had to re­move sev­eral an­i­mals from the house.

A 31- year- old woman has been charged with fraud­u­lently sell­ing a chain­saw to a pawn shop. “I re­ally do feel like I’ve been taken ad­van­tage of and I can’t do any­thing about it,” Mr Mo­laee said.
