Homeless woman in US lived inside grocery store sign board for a year

Midland (United States): In a bizarre incident, a homeless woman turned the rooftop sign of a Family Fare grocery store, located in Michigan's Midland, into a comfy living space with her innovation. It was discovered by a contractor who found an extension cord reaching the roof, according to USA Today.

The 34-year-old woman was meeting her electricity needs from the store's electricity supply.

The police are unsure how she accessed the small space, where the woman had laid flooring and installed appliances like a coffee maker and computer inside.

Surprisingly, the woman had a job but opted for this unconventional living situation. After being discovered, the woman agreed to leave the space, and no charges were filed.

The officer who encountered the woman, Brennon Warren, provided her with details about nearby homeless shelters, which she politely refused. Spartan Nash, the parent company of Family Fare, sympathised with the situation and emphasized the huge concern of accessible housing.

According to Brennon Warren, spokesperson for the Midland Police Department, contractors working on the roof of a Family Fare Supermarket in Midland stumbled upon the woman inhabiting the sign on April 23, reported USA Today.

"(The contractors) had seen an extension cord leading from one of the rooftop units to this particular sign where she had been living," according to Warren.

The officer said there's a hollow peak at the pinnacle of the supermarket's roof, between 10 to 15 feet, where the sign is situated. There's also a 3 by 4-foot access door located behind the sign.

"Definitely, big enough to kind of get into," Warren was quoted as saying by USA Today.
