I let a woman move into my rented house. When I found out

Customer Question

I let a woman move into my rented house. When I found out there was an arrest warrant in another state I tried to make her leave. The landlord put me out even though I paid the rent. He also change the locks and cut her grass. He had been told why I wanted her out.
I was able to have the arrest warrant sent to our local sheriff. She is now in jail if she has not already been sent back to her home state. I feel the landlord was knowingly harboring a criminal. What happens to her things that are in the house. He has agreed to let me recover mine. I feel that he had no right to lock me out of the house when I had paid the rent.

What was the reason the landlord made you leave?

Did he actually file to evict you through the courts?

Or did he simply lock you out?
