Police said they had found several A-frame real estate boards at the Melbourne agent’s home.
A high-profile real estate agent in Melbourne’s east has been arrested over a property market scandal in the suburbs.
Adam Docking was arrested at his Vermont South home on Tuesday morning.
At the house, police allege they found several A-frame real estate boards.
The 51-year-old is accused of stealing the signs, which belonged to his rival real estate agents.
The signs from the competing agencies in the eastern suburbs were mainly for his rivals’ Open for Inspections, police said.
Docking is currently selling a $1.3 million home made famous by the long-running TV show Neighbours.
The property is on Ramsay Street in Vermont South.
Docking had been a real estate agent for more than 30 years, but following his arrest he resigned from his position as president of the Real Estate Institute of Victoria.
Docking did not respond to a request for comment from 7NEWS over the allegations.
Police said he was released without charge pending further enquiries.
The matter is still under investigation.
