Tires and trash moved from outside a Lake Worth house to inside the home concerns neighbors

LAKE WORTH, Fla. - Volunteers and workers who say they were hired by Bank of America were out cleaning up a property on L Street in Lake Worth Friday.

The volunteers were confused because the crews from Safe Guard who say they were hired by the bank were moving hundreds of tires from the yard into the house.

They say the bank told them to move all the tires inside and to board up the windows.

"I think that is rather interesting. The bank didn't want to take responsibility to begin with and they hired a crew to clean it up, but told the crew to put everything inside the house. That is disgusting," neighbor Craig Frost said.

According to property appraiser records online, Bank of America owns the home.

"It is a fire hazard and a safety hazard. It's the worst idea I've ever heard," Frost said.

Caroline Tire workers were volunteering to move the tires off the site.

Other neighbors showed up happy to see change after many years.

"Prostitutes and drug dealers were here and that sort of thing so it tends to bring the whole neighborhood down. So when these places are elevated back up the whole neighborhood comes back up," neighbor Paul Hill said.

Volunteer crews plan to be on the property Saturday morning cleaning up the mess.

Bank of America did not respond to a request for comment.
