Clean-up crews are scooping up and hauling away debris from the former Arbors of Toledo property. On Monday, the former nursing home was torn down, which drew the attention of scavengers.
Dozens of people were scouring the site for scrap metal, and that caught the Toledo Police Department's attention, as officers chased looters off the property. A TPD spokesman says no citations were issued.
David Mann, Lucas County Land Bank president, says while there's not much scrap value on the property, he's confident police will monitor the situation.
"Any time a demolition happens in this community, there are folks that feel like they can enter onto the property and take what they think is free for them, when in reality, it's a crime. In this case, it's not part of the value that we're getting out of the demolition. Unfortunately, though, that's still private property, and it's not a free-for-all for the community," explained Mann.
The property was acquired by the land bank after the previous owner fell behind on tax payments exceeding $100,000. After the site is cleaned up, it will be gifted to the Bronson Place Association, where neighbors plan to build an arboretum.
"The city, the county, and the land bank have prioritized this demolition. The debris associated with that demolition is going to be cleaned up relatively quickly," said Mann.
