PAY YOUR BILLS
For the last couple of months the owners of the Lincoln Highway RV Park have been in a dispute with one of the subjects who rented a camping space from them. The subject sued the RV Park owners, believing they were not able to evict them under the Land Lord Tenant Act. The subjects had stopped paying rent and utilities to the RV Park owners many months ago. The owners of the RV Park patiently waited and did not evict the said subject, although they could have, until the court case was concluded. On February 17, 2021, the court ruled properly that RV Parks do not fall under the landlord tenant act as campers are not permanent “dwelling units or buildings”. Even after losing his court case, the subject did not remove his camper nor did he pay the back camper rent or utilities.
On February 23, 2021 around 1030 hours, Deputies arrived at the subject’s camper to remove him from the property and arrest him for Theft of Services. Deputies met with forty-five year old Kevin Taylor and his girlfriend twenty year old Andrea Flores, both were previously from California. Upon meeting both subjects, Deputies immediately smelled the odor of burnt and raw Marijuana coming out of the camper. Mr. Taylor was arrested for the felony Theft of Services and transported to the Lincoln County Detention Center. Ms. Flores was detained as Deputies deployed the Sheriff’s Office K-9 around the trailer. The K-9 did indicate there was narcotics inside the trailer.
A search warrant for the trailer was written and signed by a County Court Judge. Deputies searched the trailer and found numerous items of Drug Paraphernalia, about one ounce of Marijuana, about an ounce and half of suspected Methamphetamine and a large amount of cash.
Ms. Flores and Mr. Taylor were both arrested and charged with Distribution of a Controlled Substance, Methamphetamine and Possession of Marijuana. Both were placed in the Lincoln County Detention Center. The investigation in this matter continues and additional charges may be forthcoming. All of which could have been avoided by paying the fees to the RV Park.
