Squatters at Scandinavian Park

Posted: Updated:

Minot Police responded to what they were told was an auto burglary, but after investigating they discovered a different scenario.

The call was received at a quarter after nine Monday evening.

Initially, the individuals were believed to be breaking into the vehicle located at the parking lot of the Scandinavian Park.

When police reached the scene minutes after the call, they discovered the intoxicated subjects were in their own car.

Police say evidence suggested the individuals planned on sleeping in the vehicle.

One Minot authority says the nature of the incident is a growing concern in Minot.

(Capt. John Klug, Minot Police Department)"The cost of living is high, so there's been a little bit more concern of the transient lifestyle where people live in their cars and tents...sleep in a park. That kind of thing. Things that we're not used to in Minot.

Both individuals were taken to the Ward County Jail for detox.
