Sunday marked a turbulent end to the evicted tenant at 310 Mildred. Amidst the noisy move-out – at one point Sunday neighbors heard Mr. Ucci announce “demolition begins in five minutes”, followed by obnoxiously loud banging from he and his crew ripping the roof off the house. LAPD arrived and informed Mr. Ucci that he was not to destroy the premises, he was to take his items and leave. He said he was just taking the wood from the work he had done (without permission or permits). LAPD waited for him to remove his tools from the roof, and he was gone a few hours later. A myriad of new felony charges will now be pending against Mr. Ucci based on the condition of the home, and what is missing.
The property will be cleaned and boarded this week. The city has officially condemned it. Neighbors will continue to keep a watchful eye on it until the whole situation is resolved.
Take a look at craftsman Ucci’s handywork. Unbelievable.
