is it legal for someone to say to a sheriff that they lived

This answer was rated:

is it legal for someone to say to a sheriff that they lived in someone elses house with no real proof except a stolen key and have that sheriff guide this person through the house without any notice to the owner for entry nor owner being there?

Thank you for your question.

If the person entered the house illegally by misrepresenting their right to enter the house to the sheriff, then this would be illegal and would constitute trespassing. You could sue the person for trespass and for conversion for any of your property take or damaged.
