If both of you are illegal, what makes you think she will call the cops? Throw her stuff out and change locks. Your name is on the lease not hers and how will she prove that she lived with you?

ditto to the above comment

It sounds like you can just get some guys and start moving stuff out, and change the locks. Since assault is illegal, no one can hit anyone, even if you are moving her property. I would think that if she calls a cop all you'd have to do is show the cop the lease for the storage movement you're moving her stuff to.... or wait, I think maybe you can't, because tenancy laws establish certain rights, even if the tenancy has no contract and even if the sub-lease is in violation of township zoning ordinances (which often dictate how many families can legally occupy a building and/or unit).

Either way, your worst-case scenario with the cops is also helped by the fact that she probably doesn't have any ID documents showing that address
