Scrambled for Possessions After Eviction

Chris Hansen is out on his ass … with practically none of his belongings.
Sources tell TMZ … the former host of “To Catch a Predator” was escorted out of his Manhattan apartment February 6 by city marshals, but not before throwing a Hail Mary.
We’re told Hansen tried to be slick … telling the marshals the attorneys worked out a deal. The marshals weren’t buying it and called the landlord’s legal muscle. Sure enough … no deal was in place. We’re told Hansen didn’t put much of a fight after that, and — as one source put it — “went out like a church mouse.”
And, get this … after the locks were changed, our sources say Hansen tried getting back into the apartment, but obviously couldn’t. He tried in vain to convince the super to let him inside … to no avail.
We’re told Hansen ultimately got permission … and someone in his lawyer’s office picked up some items Hansen left behind in his 1,000 square foot apartment. Sources say there’s still TONS of stuff in the pad … including furniture, electronics and jewelry.
As we first reported … Chris had trouble making rent back in August and stopped sending checks altogether. The owner went to court to have him evicted … and the judge issued an order.
It’s been a rough year for Chris. He was busted in January for bouncing checks. That charge was dismissed.
