On Wednesday, April 13, Shoreline Police Officers were dispatched to a trespass in progress in the 18300 block of Ashworth Avenue North. Officers were advised that there was likely a group of runaway teens inside this residence and that this was an abandoned house.

Deputy Gerlitz was first on scene and contacted two juvenile males leaving the residence. They both claimed to be “Juggalos” which is a name given to fans of Insane Clown Posse or any other Psychopathic Records hip hop group.

Deputies Callahan and Chivington searched the house and discovered graffiti inside as well as evidence of small fires being set inside. Two additional females were seen going through the fence in the back yard. They were also contacted. All four juveniles were reported runaways and were later reunited with their families.

The Shoreline Police will be working closely with Shoreline Customer Response Team (CRT) to remedy this situation. The house has been abandoned for a long time and is a known hang out for teens and squatters.
