Homeowner arrested following standoff with squatters accused of ‘stealing’ $1M inherited house from parents

Adele Andaloro, a 47-year-old woman, was recently apprehended by authorities. She had taken the drastic step of changing the locks on a $1 million home in Flushing, Queens. According to ABC’s Eyewitness News, Andaloro claimed that she had inherited the property from her deceased parents.

“It’s absolutely infuriating,” expressed the homeowner, deeply frustrated by the ongoing squatter situation. “It’s unjust that I, as the rightful homeowner, am forced to endure such a troubling ordeal.”

According to Andaloro, the trouble began when she attempted to sell her home last month and discovered that squatters had taken over. To make matters worse, they had audaciously replaced the front door and locks.

Frustrated, she decided to take action and headed to her family’s home on 160th Street. Accompanied by a local TV outlet, she called upon a locksmith to change the locks for her.

Andaloro expressed frustration over the length of time it takes for someone to conduct an investigation, complete their work, and carry out their job, stating that it can take over 30 days for this process to be completed while the man in question remains in her home.

“I’m genuinely afraid that these individuals will escape punishment for taking away my home,” she expressed her concerns.

Andaloro, armed with the deeds, was captured on film entering the property during a recent encounter at her home. The front door had been left open by one of the apparent tenants.

Once the locks were changed, an individual who identified himself as Brian Rodriguez and claimed to be on the lease forcefully entered the property by barging through the front door, as reported by the local outlet.

Andaloro became infuriated and shouted at him during the incident caught on camera, expressing his disapproval of the attempted theft of his house.

After receiving multiple 911 calls, the police informed Andaloro that she needed to resolve the situation in housing court as it was classified as a “landlord-tenant issue.”

Andaloro mentioned that, aside from being arrested, she is also compelled to initiate an eviction case in court to resolve the conflict between her and the landlord.
