Dear PoPville – U.S. Marshals at Monroe and Holmead this Morning


“Dear PoPville,

I’ve often wondered about the large blue house with the barbed wire fence at the corner of Monroe and Holmead. It’s an odd place. For example, my wife walked by the other morning and heard a man snoring very loudly out on the lawn. That said, it’s always seemed harmless enough.

This morning, around 7:30 am, I passed by and saw 4-5 guys in U.S. Marshal shirts and gear surrounding the place. I didn’t stop and stare, but I saw and heard one of the Marshals banging loudly on the door.

Any idea what was going on? And, more generally, does anyone know the story on that house?”
