Squatter Gets Evicted From $3 Million Home


Looking for new digs, but don’t want to spend a lot of cash? Why not take up residence in a mansion and declare yourself a citizen of a make-believe country?

Most squatters will pick dilapidated abandoned buildings, but not one man in Tennessee. When bank officials went to check out a foreclosed mansion they had possession of, they found the gate chained shut.

They also found “Private Property” signs, a red flag with a green star, and “two Moorish American National Republic sovereign citizen posts claiming ownership signed by Abka Re Bey.”

This ‘republic’ features five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a media room, and a pool. Not bad for a 10,000 sq. foot building on 3 acres. I’m sure George Washington would be proud.

Bankers left a note at the gate of the property asking the current tenant to be out in 24 hours.

The recent housing market crash left a lot of foreclosed property across the country. By some estimates, there are more empty homes in this country than homeless people.
