NAMPA, Idaho (AP) - Authorities say an Idaho woman living in a couple’s vacant home without their permission has agreed to move out.

Nampa Police Department spokesman Sgt. Tim Riha says the 46-year-old claims she signed a lease and paid $1,500 to someone to rent the house. Homeowners Brian and Renae Prindle say they don’t know that person and were not renting to anyone.

Riha says the Prindles were unable to evict the woman because of a state law protecting renters tricked into signing a lease.

The Prindles say they were able to reach an agreement with the woman and Nampa police on Tuesday: In exchange for her voluntary move-out, the Prindles would pay for a storage unit for three months.

Nampa officers used their vehicles to help move Smith’s belongings into storage Tuesday.
