Squatters take over some Staten Island homes

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Staten Island homes that were left vacant after Superstorm Sandy are getting some unwelcome tenants: squatters, DNAinfo.com reported.

A local community board member says the squatters look for homes that have had recent repairs then break in and start living there.

To make matters worse, there are fears that some of the squatters have come up with a scheme to make it harder to evict them.

DNAinfo.com reporter Nicholas Rizzi discusses the story.
