OLATHE, Kan. (WDAF) -- An Airbnb host said his home was trashed after a couple rented a room from him for two days.

Chris Sayegh said he rented out a portion of his house, and last week a couple left behind drugs, knives in the walls, bloodstains around the room and trash. Sayegh estimated the damage to be upwards of $4,000.

Police came and confiscated the drug paraphernalia. That led to the arrest of 29-year-old Rebecca Singh and 23-year-old Joseph Crane. The pair both face drug possession charges with individual bonds set at $10,000.

“I will continue Airbnbing if they will help me get the proper security systems to be comfortable, help me get a ring doorbell, the proper locks for every room, and compensate me for my emotional pain,” Sayegh said.

He said he contacted Airbnb, and the claims department assured him the matter would be handled. A rep with Airbnb also said it runs background checks on all renters for felonies and significant misdemeanors using name and dates of birth.
