Pasco man sold parents' home for $100, deputies say

SHADY HILLS — A son is accused of selling his parents' mobile home without their permission.

He got $100.

Christopher D. Wilson, 25, was arrested Monday and charged with grand theft. According to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office, Wilson and his girlfriend were living with his parents in a mobile home on Oaklawn Drive in Shady Hills. Wilson's father, David Wilson, was accused of pushing his son's girlfriend and was arrested Jan. 4 on a charge of domestic battery — a charge the 62-year-old denies. "I didn't lay a hand on her," David Wilson said.

With the elder Wilson gone, the son forced his mother off the property, authorities said.

"While I was in jail, they tore my house all to pieces," David Wilson said. "They threatened my wife. Stole my two boats, all my tools, motor home.

"It's all gone."

The Sheriff's Office said Christopher Wilson sold the 1978 mobile home for $100. It was worth more than $1,000, a report states. Sheriff's spokesman Kevin Doll said Christopher Wilson also sold his parents' jewelry, computers, cameras, air compressor and tools. The case is still under investigation, with possible additional suspects, Doll said.

Christopher Wilson remained Tuesday at the Land O'Lakes jail in lieu of $2,000 bail.
