Tabitha Gentry may have thought she could live the high life for a while, but she only made it about a week this time around, apparently. The mansion squatter was arrested and charged after living in a Memphis mansion and trying to claim it as her own. ABC24 shared the details on March 8.
It seems that Gentry claims to be a part of the Moorish National Movement. Most have not heard of this before, but it apparently means she thinks she doesn't have to follow the laws. She had filed paperwork on Feb. 25 claiming the property “in the name of Allah, the Most High, Creator of the Heavens and Earth.” The home in question is currently owned by a bank after going into foreclosure.
The mansion squatter was arrested after she ignored an eviction notice by the bank. Now she is being held on $2 million bond and faces charges of aggravated burglary, criminal trespassing and theft of property. Sadly she had two children with her at the time of her arrest. One has been given to a relative while the other is still with the Department of Child Services. Apparently additional people may face charges.
Interestingly, Tabitha Gentry has been in legal trouble before. She previously tried to run over a police officer during a traffic stop. It seems at that time she offered the police a sovereign citizen identification card. Some might say that approach isn't working particularly well for her. Gentry, who has six children, was arrested while driving a white Jaguar. The police say the mansion squatter was arrested when she left the property, and she was not at all happy about it.
