FOX 8 Defenders: Man accused in rental scam theft gets arrested again

GRETNA, LA (WVUE) -

The FOX 8 Defenders learn the man at the center of our ongoing rental scam investigation was arrested this week.

Jefferson Parish Criminal Court documents show Kyron Hunter was arrested Tuesday on charges of 'injuring public records,' meaning the intentional removal or destruction of records.  He was also charged with operating a vehicle with a suspended license and resisting arrest.

Meantime, Hunter is awaiting trial on theft charges after detectives say he advertised and rented out properties he didn't own to families in neighborhoods from Gretna to Harvey.  The FOX 8 Defenders were the first to expose what detectives called an 'elaborate scheme.'  His trial date in that case is set for April 11th.  

If you've got a consumer concern, call the FOX 8 Defenders staffed with volunteers from the National Council of Jewish Women at 1-877-670-6397 or fill out an online complaint form.
