Tuesday, a resident of Inglewood, Cheryl Meyers was walking her dog in a local park. During that walk she encountered what many area residents had been talking about – A massive homeless camp set up in the park.
Unlike most residents of the area, Cheryl investigated the homeless camp. She was shocked at what she found – Significant sums of computers, expensive bicycles tools, knives and other valuables. Many residents had been complaining to the police for a while about a wave of theft, but nothing had occurred.
Instead of calling the police once again, Cheryl took photos of the items and posted them on a local facebook page. When several residents realized that their stuff was stolen by members of the homeless camp, they were enraged. A large group of individuals took to the camp with bolt cutters and hacksaws. They successfully were able to liberate a great deal of their stolen possessions.
When asked about the local effort, the police response was the following.

In the end, the police did show up to investigate the homeless camp, however no arrests were made.
