Two Florida men were arrested last week after police said they were living illegally in an apartment complex in Marietta.

Joe Johnson and John Lenford Willis, both of Jacksonville, Fla., were both charged with felony first degree burglary after management of Notting Hill Apartments, 750 Franklin Road, discovered them living in an apartment.

According to the April 25 arrest warrants, Johnson allegedly changed the locks on the apartment, preventing complex staff from entering, and he was not paying rent. He was also charged with misdemeanor theft of services for using power in the apartment and misdemeanor possession of marijuana.

Johnson and Willis were each released on $20,000 bond.

Hmmm, its a felony to be on private property when you are in the country legally.

Check with the ranchers on the border about prosecution of illegal aliens on their property.

Double standard and hypocrisy.
