MCARTHUR, Ohio » An Ohio bank says a bad GPS navigator is the reason it repossessed the wrong house — and threw out all the possessions inside.

Homeowner Katie Barnett says her McArthur home was wrongly repossessed while she was away with her family last month. When they returned to the house, the locks had been changed and many of their belongings were missing.

Barnett wants the First National Bank of Wellston to give her $18,000 for the lost items. She says the bank wants her to show receipts for everything that's missing.

First National CEO Anthony Thorne says the bank wants to compensate the family "fairly and equitably" but the items Barnett is claiming doesn't match up with what the bank's employees removed.

The bank says the house it meant to clean out was on the same street.
