What The Neighbors Had To Say
According to residents interviewed by WSB-TV, the people next door were dubbed the "worst neighbors ever" due to their reported weekend strip club operation, reckless street racing on the residential roads, and the occasional sight of live horses strolling through their yard.
"A lot of partying, they had an illegal strip club on the weekends," one neighbor told the local news station.
"They would get live horses. One day they had live horses," another neighbor said.
The local news outlet WSB-TV reported that the squatters living in the dilapidated property had been a source of regular complaints from neighbors, yet no action was taken until the recent Sunday when a SWAT team carried out a raid.
Police Raid The House
The police stated that the SWAT operation resulted in the arrest of four individuals residing in the house. The motive for the raid was due to a stolen vehicle that was detected on the property by a license plate reader.
Upon further investigation, the authorities uncovered an array of stolen items including a firearm, two stolen cars, various forms of identification, and several credit cards that had been unlawfully obtained and used.
Fulton County Jail
DeAnthony Maddox, Jeremy Wheat, Kelvin Hall and Tarahsjay Forde were named as the four squatters by authorities. The suspects have been incarcerated at Fulton County Jail for a multitude of offenses, which include numerous charges of receiving stolen goods.
Authorities are currently overseeing the house to guarantee that it remains unoccupied.
