Woman Explains How She Found Squatters Living In Her Attic

Amazingly, it took a woman almost a year to figure out squatters had been living in her attic. She shared her story on Reddit saying she started hearing strange noises at her home shortly after moving in a year ago with her boyfriend and their dog.

She wrote, “A few times, though, maybe six or eight, I was so distracted by the dull thudding noises coming from above my head that I nearly called the cops. I would go outside, wake my sleeping boyfriend up and proceed to freak out until he calmed me down enough. He always said he didn't hear a peep and that my mind was playing tricks on me. But he showed me where his collectible swords and a heavy pipe were just in case. He told me to keep the pepper spray by the bed if it made me feel better.”

According to the woman, her mother — who is also her landlord and lives next door — found a squatter living in her backyard, and the area where she lives is known for “homeless drug activity.”

The woman continued to write, “So, knowing all this, four months ago, my silverware disappeared. Poof, gone. It is not here in my house, nowhere to be found in my kitchen. My house is 600 square feet. How far can a few forks, knives and spoons go? I had had some people over to work on the plumbing since moving in and to install a washer and dryer. But I was home while they were here. And why would they want my silverware? It was just a cheap set from Target."

Then, the other night, the woman's mother noticed the light was on in her attic. The woman explained, “About 10 minutes later, five officers walked into the backyard where the attic access is. They got on the roof, flashlights and weapons drawn. That's when I started to freak out and cry. I tried to keep it together and walked away. My mom was comforting me and my boyfriend was standing guard. The officers explored the tiny attic and came out alone; no squatters. But there are sleeping bags, liquor and beer bottles, torn up pillows and papers up there.”

She used to believe the items belonged to children who used to live in the house, now she thinks they were from “random strange men.” She stated, “No way in hell am I sleeping tonight. I'm on high-alert now and about to smoke the first cigarette since quitting last year. These people are still out there! They may come back. They may see the lock on the attic and retaliate.”
