Fitchburg Sentinel: A Medford woman was arrested Monday on charges she broke into a Central Street home and lived there with her three children for several days. Akkima Danniell Briscoe, 39, of 85 Rockwell Ave. in Medford was arraigned Tuesday on charges of breaking and entering, vandalizing property and larceny from a building. She also had a warrant out for her arrest. Police became aware of Briscoe’s residence at 525 Central St. after the new homeowner drove by on Monday and was surprised to see a plumbing truck out front, according to police Lt. Michael Ciccolini.
“He was in the process of purchasing the house when he noticed the truck parked out front. He stopped to inquire what it was doing there,” Ciccolini said.
According to the police narrative, the plumber told the new homeowner that he had been called to 525 Central St. because the woman living their wanted the water turned back on.
“Unbeknownst to him, a family had moved into the house,” Ciccolini said. “Briscoe claimed she lived there and did not. She was then arrested for breaking and entering.”
Briscoe told police that she been living at the address since Friday, Ciccolini said. She also told police that she had removed all the house’s doorknobs, had all of the locks changed, and called the plumber to turn the water back on. Ciccolini also said that she had taken the real estate agent’s lock box that was being kept at the property.
First of all, how does some chick from Medford end up all the way in Leominster? There were a million and one places you could’ve squatted in along Route 2, and she chose to go an hour west to Leominster. She’s gotta have friends or family in the area. We wouldn’t know because we had no luck finding any Akkima Danniell Briscoe’s on the Facebook machine. But if she’s using an alias, please send our way.
Secondly, Is the ballsiest move in the history of squatting? It’s one thing to move into a place if it’s abandoned. But calling up a plumber, changing the locks, and stealing the realtors key box? Ballsy. But it’s really only ballsy because you’re guaranteed to get caught. Oh, and if you’re gonna pull a move like this, you probably shouldn’t warrants out for your arrest too. Or, ya know, have three children along for the ride you call life.
Thirdly, she chose a house on Route 12, a stone’s throw away from downtown Leominster. Rule #1 of squatting – don’t squat on Main Street. More people drive by and you’re more likely to get caught.
Anyway, it goes without saying that this is an extremely ratchet move. It’s one thing if you wanna be a piece of shit like this, but dragging three innocent children into it makes you a shitty parent. Just sayin.
