BEACH, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) - A homeowner defaced her own home and is
thumbing her nose at her home owners association and neighbors. It
happened in the Indian Harbor area of Satellite Beach at the Town House
Sheila Jones and her family have lived
at the Town House Estates home for only 18 months but say
its been a nightmare since day one. Jones says
neighbors have complained about her potted plants and the
number of cars she has parked outside of her home.
She says they have also sent her angry letters calling her
'white trash.' This week she said she "snapped,"
and made her feelings known by using her home as the canvas
writing,"Hitler would be a welcome neighbor here. Stop
the harassment to my family. Merry Xmas."
was gonna paint it over this morning it was done in the moment and I guess
the Hitler thing is the thing that really pushed people over the edge. I
feel I'm living in a communist community and you know they can jab you and
jab you and jab you and they don't have to stop," said homeowner
Neighbors and Jones' home owners association are not
amused. "They don't belong here for the simple reasons, because
when you live in an association, there are rules you've got to live by and
they haven't lived by one of them," said Pat Cutwright who lives next
Town House Estates HOA President Frank Lady
says in a statement that the graffiti is not only a city code violation of
unauthorized painting, but is also a violation of the association's
bylaws. The HOA has talked with the Indian Harbor Police about the
graffiti and will be cooperating with law enforcement.
