‘Lot of Cockroaches and Rats’: Neighbors Fed up with California Hoarder Home


Neighbors fed up over a California home enveloped with debris and trash that’s been piling up for years will soon see a resolution.

The smell is just one thing that has upset neighbors like Leticia Ruiz, who is also concerned about the health and safety hazards posed by the trash piles along the back, sides and front of the home, which is located in the Koreatown neighborhood of Los Angeles.

“It’s not sanitary. If there’s a fire, what do I do?” said Ruiz

Stacks of boxes and other debris also cover most of the home’s entrance and are piled on top of a vehicle that is blocked in the driveway.

“I do see a lot of cockroaches and rats,” said Mark Mendoza, another resident.
