CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A woman was charged with trespassing after allegedly living in a Charlotte home that belongs to the bank.

Ninti El-Bey, 42, is charged with second-degree trespassing and breaking and entering.

Residents notified authorities after noticing that El-Bey was living in the upscale home without authorization from Chase Bank, which owns the home.

Court documents, obtained by WBTV, show that El-Bey is suing police for alleging crimes against indigenous people because her family is part of the Yamasee Moorish Nation.

In the complaint, she noted that several officers tried to evict her without eviction papers on Oct. 20.

El-Bey is being held on a $1,000 bond. Her court date is set for Nov. 23.
