Cleveland, GA asked in Probate for Georgia

Q: Can one of the hire’s take things from a property before the will goes through probate?

My grandmother had a will she passed in 2012. She had 4 living sons she left her property to one of the sons who took care of her he lived on the property and the others agreed to him living there. He just passed two weeks ago leaving it to the last three sons the mothers will never went to probate so the property and everything is still in her name but one of the living brothers has already started taking things from the house and off the property without notifying the other brother. How do we stop things from disappearing?
