The State

October 27, 1987

Two teen-age boys, one of whom had been thrown out by his parents, made a home in the attic of a Turlock shopping center, authorities say. They hauled up a mattress, carpeting, two metal lawn chairs, a small stove and a set of milk crates for shelves, Fire Marshal Dick Lutz said. They even painted and partitioned the area, using cardboard for insulation. "They had everything set up--carpeting, partitions, the whole works," said Richard Sargis, owner of the Video Box, which is right under the attic. "They were real nice guys," Sargis said. "It takes someone pretty ingenious to do all that. . . . They really took it all seriously." No charges were filed against the boys.
