A South Side landlord is charged with theft after she allegedly emptied out the home of a DePaul University coach.

Blue Demons' assistant basketball coach Billy Garrett found all of his possessions gone when he returned to his Kenwood home after a team trip to France in August.

Initially, police classified the case as a landlord-tenant dispute. They said Michelle Lawrence had placed Garrett's possession in storage. But on Tuesday, officers arrested Lawrence. She is accused of taking property in excess of $10,000.
