Details

In a seemingly civil arrangement between a would be landlord, and a perspective tenant, Madison Police were called to the 10 block of Katherine Court, reference a dispute of who had authority to be on the property. The 62-year-old female complainant stated that she had engaged in a rental agreement with a female named Tracie Wollengeurg, and after receiving a rental deposit and rent check for $2500.00, soon found out that things were not going as smooth as she would have desired. The check did not successfully clear the bank, and the victim also determined that the real name of the would be lessee was different from what was reflected on all paperwork. Feeling very uncomfortable about the entire situation, the victim contacted Tracie, and advised she wanted her key back, as she would not be renting the residence to her.

Tracie moved forward with occupying the residence, and after locks had been changed, she obtained a key from a carpet cleaner initially and a locksmith at a later time; which allowed her entry to and from the residence. The victim contacted the Madison Police Department to assist in this matter. Officers determined that it was clear that Tracie Robinson did not legitimately obtain the key from the landlord, and had moved into the property after being told that the previous arrangement was not being adhered to. Officers did check the entire home, and found that other species had also taken up residence such as a guinea pig, a gerbil, and a large tortoise. The animals were without food and water, and it was unclear as to what physical condition they were in at that moment. Animal Control Officers had to be summoned to assist in the removal of the creatures, and Tracie Robinson was taken into custody.
