Cops called 175 times on Beaverton zombie condo squatters –

Neighbors say the condo is in probate and bank has not foreclosed

BEAVERTON, Ore. (KOIN) For nearly 5 years Alex Dvir has lived in a condo complex in a quaint area in southwest Beaverton, near a middle school and a few parks. But over the past 2 years he and his fellow condo owners have had to call authorities on squatters 175 times.

Dvir said the when the man who owned the condo died, others started making themselves at home. He said its all in the hands of the bank because the condo is in probate and the bank hasnt move to foreclose.

Its not a comfortable place to live. We just have unknown traffic at all hours of the night, Dvir told KOIN 6 News. Theres known drug activity and at times there was prostitution happening in the unit.

The previous owner had a partner, but Dvir said shes been gone for well over a year, maybe longer.

Three or 4 people live at the condo at a time, he said, and its usually never the same folks for long.

Its hard to tell, I mean theres 3 or 4 constant that are usually in there, but any given day theres 3 or 4 who just kind of wander in and out, he said. Theres people that come all hours of the night. Theres been multiple people picked up for warrants. There was a search warrant just recently served on the unit that involved the SWAT team.

Sgt. Danny DiPietro with the Washington County Sheriffs Office told KOIN 6 News the condo is a hot spot for drugs and theft.

Weve made arrests off warrants there. Weve made arrestes such as stolen property, DiPietro said. Theres all sorts of arrests that are being made there, but the people who are living there are constantly changing.

KOIN 6 News knocked on the door to ask the people inside some questions, but no one answered.

Dvir and his neighbors are also concerned about the piles of junk in the backyard of the condo.

They have tires in there in if one of those were to catch fire that would just go up in a second, obviously, he said. You can see thats an adjoining unit so if it catches fire its very easy for the other one to catch fire.

During the summer there was a pile of debris by the condo that caught fire, he said. Neighbors grabbed a garden hose and put it out.

The condo property management group has no authority to remove the squatters, he said. Neither does Washington County. At this point its up to the bank.

KOIN 6 News reached out to bank officials for comment and have not yet heard back.
