(1090 The Fan) – Last month we told you about how former Seattle Sonics big man Robert Swift was refusing to leave his foreclosed home. Today, we’re told the Sonics’ 2004 first-round pick has finally vacated the property, but not without leaving quite the mess.

KOMO News reports the new owners walked into the large home Monday after Swift was gone. The first thing they noticed was the stench, saying the smell was so foul that it overshadowed the empty beer bottles, bullet holes and dozens of other “features” the dilapidated home possessed.

The owners, Jessica Ko-Dalzell and her husband Eric, had made several trips to the home after purchasing it in January, but didn’t get a full look inside until Monday.

Animal feces covered the deck; Walls were punched out on different levels of the house; And pizza boxes and beer bottles were piled on the kitchen granite, according to KOMO. The report also claims multiple guns were found in the home, including a handgun accompanied by live ammo.

An earlier report indicated the home had been foreclosed in the summer of 2012.
