My question involves criminal law for the state of: Georgia
I evicted a tenant from the home she was renting from me. She moved out this week. Today, I went to check the property and she had stolen the refrigerator (value > 2 grand), stolen some furniture that was part of the rental, and pried up some of the hardwood floors. Depending on whether or not I can find a match for the wood floors, I may be able to patch the floors in a 12 * 6 section (best case) and the cost would be a guestimate of $1K. If no match can be found I would have to replace all the floors which would be very expensive because the main floor is open with all the main rooms adjoining with same hardwood flooring. I called the police who filed a report and said a detective would contact me Monday. I assume my tenant did this out of revenge for her eviction, but I did not witness her do it. What kind of charges would be likely, and what it he likelihood a DA would pick up this type of case? If nothing criminal, how about civil recourse?
