  • Ray Addison, left, senior utilities enforcement investigator for Collier County, and co-worker Jeremy Florin, right, look though an abandoned foreclosed home in Golden Gate on Jan. 21, 2010, during a Collier County sweep of more than 200 distressed properties Thursday. The pair determined that vagrants were probably living in the house at night and got in through an unlocked door. As Addison and Florin left, they made sure all doors and windows were locked. 'Then when they come home this evening, they'll have to break in,' Addison said. 'Then they can go to jail.' The effort of more than 30 deputies and utility workers identified code violations and other property issues from the properties in Golden Gate. Greg Kahn/Staff
