[July 24, 2010]  LONGWOOD, Fla. (AP) -- A lawyer was accused of burglarizing the home of a client who filed a complaint against him with the Florida Bar.

Albert Ford II was being held on charges of burglary to a structure causing damage, grand theft, criminal mischief and burglary to an occupied dwelling. The 43-year-old Longwood environmental and land use lawyer was arrested Thursday. He has his first court appearance Friday afternoon.

A person who answered the phone at Ford's law office declined to comment.

Lake Mary police said Ford went to the client's home, threw something into the pool and removed a tank and filter near the pool. He also took a flag from the front of the house.
