In a bizarre turn of events, a Florida man is behind bars for allegedly hoarding $3,325,000 of property in a mansion.
The man was arrested Monday after a Florida deputy with the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office seized a boat and a truck in connection with the raid.
The raid occurred after deputies executed a search warrant at the home in the 5000 block of North Florida Avenue.
“They found a boat, a truck, and a boat,” Hillsborough Deputy Capt. Tom Smith said in a statement.
“We have taken custody of a boat.
The truck was taken from the home.
We are still looking into the details.”
The Tampa Bay Times reported the boat was the one that was seized.
Smith told the Times that a search of the property showed that it was worth an estimated $1 million.
In his arrest warrant, the man also allegedly told authorities that the money was going to a friend, a nephew.
The alleged money-laundering scheme was uncovered during an investigation into the sale of the mansion to a Tampa-based real estate developer, according to the Tampa Bay County Sheriff.
The mansion was purchased in 2014 for $4.5 million by a man who had previously purchased a Florida mansion.
He was arrested and charged with one count of possession of stolen property.
The Times reported that the home was built in the 1950s, with a home on the lakefront.
