TEN MONTHS OF FREE LIVING came to an abrupt end for a St Peter “tenant” yesterday.

Mark Daisley had been shacking up in an unfinished wall house at Lot 14 Leslie Gardens, Maynards, without the owner’s knowledge, far less permission, but it all ended yesterday under the eyes of the law.

He had to move out all his possessions – including a living room suite, washing machine, two fridges, two stoves, a large flat screen TV, as well as a dog tied up and living on the inside – when he was eventually found out.

Carlos Yearwood, acting on the behalf of his brother Lincoln Harris, owner of the property, came with members of the Royal Barbados Police Force in tow and ordered Daisley to clear out from the private house.

Daisley claimed he was living at the unfinished wall house with the permission of the owner, whom he referred to as Chris, after doing some work for him. He explained that due to his girlfriend falling ill and him losing his job, he was in dire straits and needed somewhere to go desperately. (DB)
