(KMOV) – A landlord in Joplin, Missouri has been accused of price gouging after May’s deadly tornados.

Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster says David Box Jr. raised rental prices by as much as 25 percent after the tornado hit.

The lawsuit says the tenants were given three days to contact the landlord, or else their homes could be rented to someone else.
