Description

The homeless camp by the water in the woods off of Exit 6 between the off ramps from 91 N and 91 S is starting up again and it needs to be broken up ASAP! I can not comprehend how this is allowed to go on.

The other night my wife and I were coming off the exit and we saw a man carrying a bull rake, shovel and a Fed-Ex package walking towards the camp coming down Willow St. from the East Rock area. He opened the package, took whatever was inside, threw the box on the ground and kept walking towards the camp. I hate to jump to conclusions but it seems pretty clear that this individual stole the rake and shovel from someone's yard and stole the Fed-Ex package from someone's yard. I live in East Rock and had several packages stolen off my porch last summer. I'm not saying these individuals are responsible but they are clearly committing crime in the East Rock area and I am sick of it.

Last summer this camp was allowed to exist and grow into the late fall. The individuals who are living here litter the area with their garbage and regularly hold up traffic with their panhandling. Can somebody please stop looking the other way and do something about this?
