Neighbors said they're living in fear after vagrants take over vacant lots near Lake Mead and Hollywood boulevards.
"They're watching the homes," said Renee Smith-Robb, "...we saw drug deals going down."
The 71-year-old has owned a nearby home for over a decade. Smith-Robb said she never leaves her house unattended.
Other residents said the homeless are jumping over fences.
"They were bothering my dog," said Patricia Wheeler. "They started throwing rocks at her."
There has also been several break-ins; however, it's unclear who is behind those crimes.
Rodney Wheeler said he's reached out to police multiple times. But by the time patrol officers arrive, the perpetrators are long gone.
Clark County Commissioner Marilyn Kirkpatrick oversees the district where the problem is. She says work has been done to clean up the area, including securing these vacant buildings.
When 13 Action News came out Thursday though, there was a big gap in the fence.
But what about the homeless people Las Vegas police cannot arrest and the ones who don't want to be a part of county services or go to a shelter? How does the county get those people to leave?
Kirkpatrick says there is a new initiative coming in the next year.
"It's a case management program," she said. "So many of them have mental illness, so we need to ensure that they can get the medications and they can get the proper follow ups."
