At least four vacant apartments surround a courtyard in an apartment complex near Vegas Drive and Rainbow, and neighbors say there could be up to half a dozen intruders living in them.
LAS VEGAS (KTNV) - Families in a valley neighborhood are living in fear because of squatters who have moved in.
"It's kind of out of hand," said Felicia Clay, a neighbor. "I've seen the cops over here a couple times but nothing really happens."
There's broken glass, boarded-up windows and in the courtyard lies a tent and a dirty mattress.
In addition, a power cord crosses the ground where it appears the intruders are leeching electricity from one of the other vacants.
"With the kids, we sleep here so I'm scared to go to sleep at night sometimes or leave them downstairs at night because they're so little," Clay said.
