BUTTE, Mont. (AP) - A Whitehall homeowner is seeking $168,000 in damages from Wells Fargo after the bank mistakenly seized his home.

The Montana Standard reports Kevin Moore says the bank’s agent broke into his home, changed the locks, rummaged through his belongings and left the place ransacked.

Moore was living in Alaska at the time of the incident.

Wells Fargo’s lawyer Kenneth Lay acknowledged to jurors on Monday that the bank sent an agent inspector inside the wrong house but says it was an honest mistake and nothing was taken or damaged.

He says Moore’s demands for damages are out of line.

The company that sent an inspector to Moore’s home on the bank’s behalf reached a private settlement with him before the trial.
