Greetings from Barstow, California, where squatters are a problem

Postcard from Retiring Guy's collection

Squatters a growing problem in Barstow.  (Desert Dispatch, 5/14/2017)
The Police Department identified a need after 149 calls for service regarding residential trespassing were received from November to January. When officers arrived on 70 of those calls, the culprits had already fled and no action was taken. Officers were able to make arrests 28 times. There were 13 times when the person who had a “vested interest” in the property did not want any action taken. Officers completed forms and told the trespassers not to return on nine occasions. There were 33 times where “other action was taken.”
