LOGAN, West Virginia (WSAZ) – A West Virginia woman is looking for answers after a repossession company cleaned out her house by mistake.
The company had the wrong address. Now there are questions about whether there will be consequences and who will pay them.
The homeowner, Nikki Bailey, lives in Logan. According to her attorney, the repossession company, CTM Industries in Rivesville, was told to remove everything from the house on Godby Heights in Logan.
However, Bailey lives along Godby Street in Logan. Godby Heights is in Chapmanville.
It’s still unclear who got the address wrong: if it was CTM or the bank that ordered the repossession.
“It’s a lot like taking someone’s luggage at the airport. If I take a black bag, a black piece of luggage, get home and realize this is not my bag — that’s not a crime. That’s an accident,” Kanawha County Prosecutor Mark Plants said.
Bailey says CTM workers told her everything was taken to the dump.
