Hamilton boards up house, cuts down foliage to try to battle homeless issue in Lindenwald neighborhood.

Hamilton neighbors upset after spotting couple having sex in former homeless camp

“Just caught 2 people completely naked having sex,” the account of Ashley and Ben Wilson wrote on Facebook. “And lucky me, my little girl was home sick from school and walked outside to get into our van just to see the whole thing… I’m beyond (upset) and I chased them down to let them know just how I felt!”

Ashley Wilson was among the leaders of an effort to rid the neighborhood of people who were openly using drugs in their area and stealing many items, including bicycles, even plants from their porches.

Police Chief Craig Bucheit said an officer was in the area Tuesday speaking with people about the issues.

“It’s a pretty profane act,” he said about the open sex. “We’ll try to locate these people, we’ll keep an eye out.”

The chief noted that the clearing of brush on the CSX railroad property behind neighborhood houses curtailed some of the problems.

“Before all that stuff was cut down, who knows what was going on that people weren’t seeing?” Bucheit said.
