Four men were arrested in Atlanta for allegedly squatting in a home and running an alleged strip club out of the residence, according to a new report.

WSB-TV reported that neighbors said people living in the Atlanta home kept them up with their partying during all hours. One neighbor claimed to the station that the suspects "had an illegal strip club on the weekends.”

Neighbors also told WSB-TV they have lost sleep over the last four months because of the alleged nuisance neighbors.

The neighbors, according to the report, allegedly had piles of trash at the home, raced in the streets, and even had live horses outside of the house at one point.

“They would get live horses," one neighbor explained to WSB-TV. "One day they had live horses,”

Neighbors said they made complaints to the police, but nothing was done until the morning of Oct. 15 when a SWAT team showed up at the property and raided the home.

According to WSB-TV, police said they arrested four people at the home and a license plate reader indicated a stolen car was at the property.

Police said the driver of the vehicle refused to come out. Officers called for backup and the SWAT team arrived and entered the property, where they found a second stolen car, a stolen gun as well as stolen IDs and credit cards, authorities said.


Following the arrests, neighbors said they learned the four men taken into custody were actually squatters living in the home, WSB-TV reported.

Police said they are now monitoring the home to make sure no one returns.
