Autographed Paula Deen photo destroyed by former roommates, man says

A Conway man says his autographed Paula Deen photograph was destroyed by his former roommates.

The 19-year-old complainant said he was kicked out of his apartment for failing to pay rent, and received threatening Facebook messages from both after vacating the apartment. The complainant said his former roommates also posted a photo of the two “ripping up” his autographed Paula Deen photo, valued at $1 in the police report.

The complainant said other personal items are still in the apartment, and asked police to provide a civil standby Friday morning while he recovered his belongings.

Police advised the complainant of the warrants process, and informed him further evidence would be needed to support his claim of terroristic threatening.
