This is absolutely terrible. Would there be any way to press criminal charges on the tenant? Breech of contract on the management company? Is there insurance that can cover some of these losses?Arrived in Yelm around 6:30 pm on Tuesday to find mountains of garbage and junk in the front yard, mountains of garbage in the back yard, discarded clothes laying all over the house from the break in. The door in the rear bedroom was missing a pane of glass and had a piece of plywood nailed over it. A box spring was left in the bedroom, a sofa in the living room, and junk and trash scattered over the floors. It could have been worse though and rapidly became worse.
Needing the bathroom DS1 found the toilet full of unflushed feces. Flushing did no good and we discovered that the water was not working. DH checked the electric panel which was ok, so he went out to check the pump and see if the water was turned off.
A scream of rage brought DS1 and I running to find DH in the pump shed with his flashlight pointed at a hole in the floor. THE ENTIRE WELL PUMP ASSEMBLY, TANK, PIPING, AND ALL ELECTRIC WIRING FROM HOUSE TO PUMP HAD BEEN REMOVED!
More investigation in the dark showed that the2 room shed had been broken into as well and my antique wood stove looked like it was missing as well as the table and 4 chairs from the dining area that we had locked in the shed!
No water, no bathroom, off to a motel in Lacey - 20 minutes away.
How did they pull 52' of casing out of the ground? That would take heavy equipment. Are there any houses around where the residents would have seen this happening?including the casings into the ground to reach the water level!!!
