Sidewalk Sleepers Trouble Banks
Local banks kept police busy trying to keep the homeless population from sleeping on their property on Wednesday.
Just after 7:30 am, a caller reported someone sleeping in the lobby at the US Bank.
When officers arrived on the scene 10 minutes later, they discovered a homeless man. They advised him to go to a homeless shelter or take advantage of the Salvation Army warming station.
He gathered his belongings and left the premises.
Around 2 pm, officers responded to a request from the manager at PNC Bank to check on a homeless man who keeps trying to stay on the property. He said there had been several complaints about the man’s behavior from customers and employees.
At 2 am, police were called back to the PNC bank for a report of a homeless man sleeping near the ATM, however, he’d left the scene before the police arrived.
Forty-five minutes later, officers spoke with a homeless man at the Fifth Third Bank Drive-Thru who said he had just stopped into the lobby to get warm and leave. Officers advised him that banks do not want people on the property unless they are using their services.
