Video: It Gets Worse – GA Code Enforcement Officer Entered Home Without Permission
As bad as this sounds, it gets even worse. The Code Enforcement officer was let go from a local sherrif's department in 2004 for taking property.
A woman got the shock of her life when she woke up to find a stranger in her bedroom, yelling at her to wake up because her grass was too long. Erica Masters was asleep when Columbia County Code Compliance Officer Jimmy Vowell entered her Martinez, Georgia, home without permission to serve a violation notice for her overgrown lawn. After knocking on the woman's door a few times, Vowell let himself and made his way into her bedroom, which was captured on surveillance video.
Based upon a local broadcast - see video below – he was let go from the Richmond County Sheriff's Department for admitting taking a computer from the property room there. So, someone decided to make him a code enforcement officer? Are you serious? Someone better call bubba's uncle and tell him that patronage job thing ain't working out too well.
