The San Francisco Police department confirmed that it has made an arrest in the incident involving an Airbnb host who had her entire life turned upside down when renters ransacked her apartment and ultimately stole her property and identity.

The San Francisco Police Department has issued a statement regarding the arrest. The statement, which Airbnb sent to me, confirms that on June 28 two people were detained but released pending further investigation.

Later on that evening, officers say they arrested Faith Clifton, a 19-year-old white female of San Francisco. Clifton has been booked into San Francisco County Jail on possession of stolen property, methamphetamine and fraud charges.
