Late Monday, I received a call from Doris Carollo,the Visalia resident who has control over a house on S. Burkett Ave. in Stockton.
While she appreciated my effort to relate the ordeal she is going through with a local investor, she continued to attack the tenants who have moved in to her grandmother’s home with the help of said investor.
She said she told them to leave six months ago, and they haven’t. They do drugs. One of their sons collects social security for bogus reasons.
She then asked if I contacted the district attorney’s office. I said yes, and the office couldn’t comment because they had not received a complaint. This upset her, and she claimed she had spoken with the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office, which directed her to start eviction proceedings, and that should qualify as a complaint. Eviction proceedings could cost $3,000.
I had to remind Ms. Carollo that I am not an attorney, nor a representative of law enforcement, I encouraged her to get an attorney then file a formal complaint against the investor with either Stockton PD or the Sheriff.
When she said she couldn’t afford an attorney, I told her it’s the only way to get the ordeal resolved.
It’s a sad situation, but I hope that after reading my article, an attorney or member of local law enforcement will investigate further. Hopefully, an attorney out there will step forward to help either Carollo and her family, as well as the tenants in the home.
