3rd eviction at mobile park thwarted by court order
Despite obtaining an injunction to stop evictions at a Syosset mobile home park, Nassau County deputies arrived with movers at around 9 a.m. Wednesday to evict a third resident.
Officers partially evicted Roger Dupre, a resident of the park for 18 years and a Vietnam veteran before Nelson Hess, Vice President of the homeowner's association, arrived with a court order. By that time, officers had ransacked Dupre's home, cut his plumbing and shut off his water.
As News 12 has reported, the landlord, STP LLC, obtained a warrant in January 2013 to clear out the park. However, residents say the warrant expired six months after it was issued, but the evictions have moved forward anyway.
Dupre called the Sheriff's office. He says they told him, "They're sorry. It was a mistake, but it really wasn't that big [of] a deal."
Dupre says he will now have to buy new clothes so he can continue to go to work.
News 12 reached out the Nassau County Sherrif's Office and haven't heard back.
Lawyers representing the mobile home owners and the property owners are both due back in court next Thursday.
