Five people, including a jobless former real estate agent, were arrested and charged with trespassing after, police say, they were found living illegally in a foreclosed Arizona home, MyFOXPhoenix.com reported.
"I was just trying to get out of the cold," Jim Taylor, who lost his job when the real estate market collapsed, told MyFOXPhoenix.com. "I wasn't trying to, you know, vandalize the place or hurt the place or try and cause any trouble. Really it was just a matter of, you know, getting in out of the elements."
Video of the inside of the house shows a trash-ridden interior without any heat or electricity.
It was not clear how long the five people had been living in the home.
