FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Police say an apparent address mix-up led to gutting of the wrong Fort Worth house before its planned sale.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram (http://bit.ly/2m4kN4L ) reported Friday that police found no criminal intent and decided to let the contractor and the owners work it out.

Lee and Lelia Beckelman, of the Houston area, had a contract to sell the rental house.

They called police after their real estate agent Feb. 9 discovered that appliances, toilets and furniture were missing.

Later reports say that the contractor has agreed to pay for repairs to the house. 

Sgt. W.D. Paine says the owner of another house scheduled to be gutted had told the contractor to kick in the door and remove almost everything.

Paine says the contractor told police that the crew saw the correct house number on the curb, but didn’t notice different numbers on the house they stripped.
