Posted: Updated:

FARMERVILLE, La. (KNOE 8 News) - Union Parish Sheriff's deputies have arrested a woman for tearing down her ex-boyfriend's mobile home and selling it for scrap iron.

Susie Lynette Cain, 39 of Sterlington was booked Thursday for theft and her bond was set at $5,000.

The ex-boyfriend, Marvin Middleton of West Sterlington, filed the complaint while he was incarcerated in Concordia Parish.

"He wrote me a letter accusing (UPSO) of not doing anything about (Cain) selling it for scrap. So I sent some deputies down there to take his complaint," Sheriff Dusty Gates said.

Detectives confirmed that Middleton had purchased the 12-foot by 60-foot mobile home for $500. Witnesses at the mobile home park in West Sterlington confirmed that Cain partially tore down the trailer and then had the rest hauled off to sell as scrap iron.

"After we did all the work and got a warrant for (Cain's) arrest, he called and wanted to drop any charges," Gates said, "At that time, it was too late."
