Police won't charge George Zimmerman for alleged furniture theft

The man acquitted in the shooting death of an unarmed black teen won’t be charged with stealing furniture from his mother-in-law, Lake Mary, Fla., police said.

Department spokesman Officer Zach Hudson characterized the matter as “a civil dispute” between George Zimmerman and his mother-in-law landlord, Machelle Dean, the Orlando Sentinel reported Wednesday.

Zimmerman, 29, is the former Neighborhood Watch volunteer in Sanford, Fla., acquitted by a Seminole County jury in July in the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman said he killed Martin in self-defense.

Zimmerman’s mother-in-law, Machelle Dean filed a police report last month, accusing, Zimmerman of stealing a king-sized bed, an antique chair and several other furniture pieces from the house he rented from her, a police report said.
