Howard is on the trail of squatters in Canarsie

CANARSIE, Brooklyn -- Here we go again. Squatters -- those who think it’s OK to live in someone’s home without their consent. And not pay a dime in rent.

Beverly Daniel of Canarsie, Brooklyn was under pressure to close on a home on Remsen Avenue. The renter, a guy named Kelvin McClean, was supposed to move out. He didn’t. He has the only keys and now Beverly can’t even get into her own home.

But that didn’t stop Kelvin from apparently bringing in more squatters. I ran into a couple of them when I went over to the house with Beverly. What we saw was caught on video.

Legal action is already underway. It takes time. But I’m just getting started. Eventually these guys will all go. We’ll keep you posted.
