No. Unless the tenant truly abandons the property, you must proceed with the proper eviction process by demanding possession of the property in writing and then filing a dispossessory action in the magistrate court of the county where the property is located.

You have to file a dispossesory proceeding (usually in Magistrate's Court). If you engage in self-help you are at risk of a significant lawsuit against you.
