Woman Made Her Home Inside a Grocery Store’s Rooftop Sign, Police Say

U.S.Woman Made Her Home Inside a Grocery Store’s Rooftop Sign, Police Say

A woman found living in the rooftop sign of a grocery store in Michigan had set up the small space to call home with flooring, a Keurig coffee maker and a computer, the authorities said.

The unidentified 34-year-old woman, who was not formally charged with anything, had been living there for about a year, Brennon Warren, a spokesman for the Midland Police Department in Midland, Mich., said in an email.

The police were called by store staff members on April 23 around 2 p.m. after contractors who were working on the roof found her, Officer Warren said.

It is unclear how she was getting up and into the triangular sign on the rooftop of a Family Fare store, he said, estimating the building to be between 15 to 20 feet tall and the space where she had been living to be about 10 to 15 feet in length, five feet wide and approximately six to eight feet “at its highest peak.”

She was told that she was not allowed to live there, and she left without incident, Officer Warren said. He noted that the “store was going to work with her on retrieving all of her property at a later time.”

In addition to the flooring, the Keurig and the computer, the woman also had a mini desk, a printer, a pantry and other miscellaneous items inside the sign, he said. He did not recall exactly what she had for bedding.
