Squatters have trashed a multi-million dollar mansion in the Hollywood Hills, filling it with garbage, feces and graffiti – including a large message reading “f–k rich people.”
The LAPD was called to the 11,000-square-foot “Villa Allegra” on Thursday afternoon with a report of “a woman screaming for help, windows breaking and a bar hitting the ground,” a spokesperson told The Post.
Officers cited a man and two women at the scene and called in an air unit to search for others seen fleeing the once-resplendent Sunset Plaza Drive property.
“They’re just trespassing, squatting,” an LAPD officer told KTLA 5, which was at the scene at the time. “The screaming was somebody, I think they got bit by a dog.”
The 11,000-square-foot home, once listed for more than $10 million, was previously decked out in marble, with a lit-up car park, a home theater, and two gourmet kitchens, photos from architect Richard Tuil’s website shows.
Now, however, its panoramic city views are obscured by collapsing tree branches, broken appliances, and other detritus, photos from the incident shared by KTLA 5 show.
Inside, the property is covered in trash and feces, KTLA said.
Graffiti is scrawled throughout, the outlet’s pics show — including the large “f–k rich people” on an outside wall.
One of the trio arrested at the property claimed to KTLA that it was all a mistake. “I was hired to clean up, take the squatters out, get the house ready for lease or for sale,” one of the women told KTLA.
However, a real estate agent for the once-swanky manse said none of the three had permission to be there.
The LAPD also said that the call to the house was part of an “‘ongoing problem” there.
The three pictured in handcuffs at the scene were not taken into custody, but do have a court date, the LAPD said.
The woman thought to have been bitten by a dog was treated by an ambulance team, the LAPD said.
“This kind of call is not unusual for Hollywood, honestly,” the LAPD spokesperson said.
“Officers did make contact with the property owner, so it’s definitely not abandoned, but it’s unclear if somebody lives there,” the rep added of the trashed mansion, which last sold for $6.9 million in 2013, according to Zillow.
Just a few hours after the three alleged squatters were cited, police responded to another call to the Sunset Plaza Drive property, which claimed to have seen a candle burning in the living room.
“There was no suspect seen, no movement,” the LAPD rep told The Post.
In January 2022, LAPD officers engaged in an hours-long standoff with a man who barricaded himself inside the 1754 address with a dog after allegedly pointing a shotgun at a person, KTLA 5 reported.
