    Jeanella Pollock
    DOB: 05/13/1962


    • Burglary 2nd Degree
    • Grand Theft 1st Degree


    On February 15, 2013 Jeanella Pollock filed a notarized adverse possession form at the Hillsborough County property Appraiser's Office on the address of 6915 Potomac Circle in Riverview. The Property Appraiser's Office sent a letter to the owner of the residence who lived in Alabama advising of Pollock's filing.

    The owner of the property indicated to detectives that she has not given anyone permission to move into her vacant home at 6915 Potomac Circle. The owner indicated she was forced to move out due to financial difficulty but was negotiating with the bank to catch up on the mortgage payment and allowed to move back into her home.

    Later on February 15, 2013, Jeanella Pollock hired a locksmith and had the locks changed on the residence. Pollock and her husband along with her teenage children moved into the residence and took up occupancy. Pollock also activated water and electric service at the residence.

    Jeanella Pollock and her family have since moved from the residence once informed of the investigation. On August 15, 2013, Pollock was arrested at her new place of residency within Hillsborough County.

    Detectives are continuing with the investigation to determine if additional arrest is warranted.
