— Police officers in Lake Mary, Fla. are investigating whether George Zimmerman inappropriately took items from his in-laws' house where he had been living.

Police spokesman Zach Hudson said Friday that officers are investigating what happened to a television, couch and other pieces of furniture that had been at the house owned by Zimmerman's in-laws.

Zimmerman moved out of the house recently after his wife, Shellie Zimmerman, filed for divorce earlier this month.

Shellie Zimmerman's mother claims the items Zimmerman took didn't belong to him.

Hudson says officers are handling the matter as a landlord-tenant dispute.

He says officers want to talk to Shellie Zimmerman's parents and also George Zimmerman before deciding if a theft took place.

Zimmerman was acquitted in July of any crime for fatally shooting Trayvon Martin.
