Cops: 28 people living in 1-family Speonk home

Town of Southampton police raided a Speonk single-family home Friday night and say they found 28 people living inside.

Building officials say the adults occupying the North Philips Avenue home were living in dangerous conditions, making for almost 90 code violations.

Southampton Code Enforcement Chief David Betts says raw sewage was leaking from faulty plumbing and exposed wiring throughout the house. There were no carbon monoxide detectors and the smoke detectors didn?t work, he says.

Authorities also say the home was divided into multiple bedrooms and people were living in backyard sheds.

Homeowner David Tash would not comment but was issued an appearance ticket.
