A woman has been arrested in Pasco County after allegedly renting out homes she didn’t own.
Authorities said the 43-year-old was arrested for scheming to defraud after allegedly pretending to be the owner of two homes — one in Holiday and the other in New Port Richey.
According to reports, she was renting out the property for $800-$850 a month.
The actual owner of the property was apparently unaware of this transaction.
The woman also had active felony warrants for grand theft and unlicensed real estate broker or sales associate in Hillsborough County.
