Man in his 20s arrested in theft of nearly $1 million from apartment building

Police in Texas say a man in his 30s is behind bars after he was arrested for stealing nearly $750,000 from a multifamily apartment complex.

The investigation was triggered after a woman reported that the man stole a $1.3 million apartment building that was being renovated by a company called Rental Home, according to a statement from the Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office.

Investigators found a note inside the apartment complex that said the apartment building was on the market for a potential buyer, the statement said.

When deputies searched the apartment, they found the note and an empty suitcase, the sheriff’s office said.

Authorities arrested the man after he returned to the apartment and told officers he was there to rent the apartment for the year, the office said in the statement.

He was booked into the Tarsus County Jail and is facing theft charges.
