Homeless camp gets an extended deadline to move

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The moving deadline for the homeless camps along a section of the Santa Cruz River has been extended.  The camps now have until Monday to move from the property.

Pima County Sheriff's Department deputies were called to the area earlier this week by the property's owners who wanted the groups gone from the private property.  The group was originally given only 24 hours, having only until the end of the day on Wednesday to gather their belongings and move along, but now the property owners have decided to extend that deadline.

According to a Pima County Sheriff's Department spokesperson it was the property owner's decision to give the homeless more time to move, after they realized the camps contained a lot of belongings and one day was not enough time. 

PCSD officials say it is possible the owner of the property did not know the camps had been on their property as long as they had. 

If there is anyone on the property after the Monday deadline they could be arrested for criminal trespassing, according to PCSD officials. 

Several of the homeless in the camp will be heading to a shelter, while others have said they are simply moving their 'home' to another spot.
