SWAT Team Removes Squatters From Foreclosed Home

In Naples, Florida, a group of squatters moved into a foreclosed home that was empty. The Naples Police Department called in a SWAT team in March of 2011. The SWAT team gassed the foreclosed home to try to force the squatters out. Three adults and two children were removed from the home. The two children, ages 2 and 3, were taken by the Florida Department of Children and Families.

A neighbor who was interviewed by NBC news said,  “it makes me so sad, it gives me chills. This is a quiet neighborhood. This is the only house we have here that’s in foreclosure.”

Foreclosed Empty Homes Can Cause Problems

If there are homes in your neighborhood that have been foreclosed upon and are currently empty, these homes can become the target for squatters to move into. There are several things neighbors can do to prevent incidents of squatters in empty foreclosed homes in your neighborhood.

Having a Home Look Like It Is Occupied

Simply parking your car in front of the home can have an impact on potential squatters to stay away. Helping out by cutting the grass gives the home a lived-in look.
