Police in Atlanta are looking for two men who were hired to help get rid of a roommate but instead robbed him.
Investigators with the APD said that the two men came back with guns and took the tenant’s electronics.
On April 20, when several men were kicking a renter out of a home on Angier Avenue, a Ring camera let them know that it was recording.
A Fulton County Marshall saw them unloading the house and leaving things in the yard. But when the tenant’s friends came to help move things to their car, they were met with trouble.

“They pulled off the Marshall and the Sheriff, and three guys came back saying something like, ‘Y’all messed us up. The victim, who didn’t want to give his name, said, “All of a sudden, I see guns coming out.” “I look at it like this: someone is already being kicked out of their home, and now you’re going to come with guns to take their TVs?”
The suspects worked for WDS Eviction Services, the police report says.
The business owner told the cops that he knew the men’s nicknames and gave them their phone numbers. Tuesday, Channel 2 Action News tried to call WDS Eviction Services more than once, but they couldn’t find a number that worked.
“It’s like kicking someone when they’re down,” said the victim, who thinks the suspects had a plan from the beginning. “They were hidden behind dressers and under a couch. I guess they were going to come back after the sheriff left. But because we were there, they had to come down and say, “Now we are going to pull our guns.”
Crimestoppers is now giving a $2,000 reward for information that leads to the suspects’ arrest.
