Trychta is on felony probation for trafficking in stolen property, according to an arrest report from the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office. She has been previously arrested in Marion County on charges of theft and driving while license suspended.

Neighbors complained last week to the Community Development District 3 Board of Supervisors about the squatters living in the home, whose owners died without a will. The neighbors alleged that the squatters are stealing water from outdoor spigots.

The District government is currently cutting the grass at the home, as the result of a deed compliance hearing held earlier this year.
