Police kick out 17 'squatters' from Manchester home
MANCHESTER - Police found 17 people living in a home without paying rent.
The home at 287-289 Lowell St. where the alleged squatters have been staying is owned by Bank of America.
Police said state laws make kicking the squatters out tricky.
Police made four arrests Wednesday but didn't charge anyone with trespassing.
Police said the people may have been living there rent free for as long as 12 months.
Neighbors said it was not unusual to see police at the home.
Police said they have responded to more than 30 calls at the home in the past year. Those calls include a gunshot wound, a stabbing, an aggravated felonious sexual assault and 11 overdoses, one of which the person died.
