(Newser) – Add “burglary” to Randy and Evi Quaid’s still-growing rap sheet. The Quaids have allegedly been squatting in a Santa Barbara guest house on a property they used to own, and are accused of causing more than $5,000 in damages to the house. Cops arrived Saturday after being called by the new owner’s representative, who showed proof that the Quaids sold the property years ago (though they told the police they still owned it, and had since the 1990s).

The troubled couple was arrested and charged with felony residential burglary, the AP reports; Evi Quaid was also charged with resisting arrest. The Quaids, of course, are already infamous for last year’s misadventures, in which they were charged with skipping out on a $10,000 hotel bill. Relive that wild ride by clicking here.
