Can my parents charge me rent if im moving out?

+1 vote
So I turned 18 on Dec 24, and two or three days later I went on a week long trip. When I got back, my adoptive parents had changed the locks on my bedroom and locked me out of the house. I tried to talk to them to get my things back so I could move out then and there and they refused until I pwyed them a rent we had never spoken about or agreed on. I've taken what I had on me but I need the rest of my stuff. Can they keep it or should I go to one of my police officer friends?

It is suggested law enforcement step in if you advise them it is best to return your items or police will be called. Have a vehicle ready when the conversation occurs. If no written proof exists, withholding is unlawful.
