GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- Sarah Benner, the daughter of a Grand Rapids landlord, spoke out to FOX 17 on camera today.
The FOX 17 Problem Solvers did a story on landlord Steve Benner yesterday. It involved a young mother who said she paid Benner a $680 deposit to rent a room in a Grand Rapids building. Days later, she said she found the front door was locked. The news station reached out to Steve Benner for comment. He said he would call back but never did.
Thursday, we did hear back from Benner's employee, Ron Van Netten, who said the property was in foreclosure when the $680 deposit was paid. Van Netten said the property had been taken over by the bank and another company, days later. Van Netten said the $680 is in the Comerica Bank account and Benner's assets with the bank are frozen.
Sarah Benner disagrees with the accusations some have levied against her father and his business. She came to the FOX 17 News station and wanted to clarify some things.
