Titusville homeless veterans lost everything including dentures and ashes

Florida and Texas are usually tied for second place for the states with the most veterans. To discover this happened here in Florida makes me very ashamed of our elected officials.

TITUSVILLE, Fla. — A group of homeless veterans is suing the city of Titusville.

They group said officers raided their camps, then destroyed their property, including a family member's ashes.

"They came and took everything," said homeless veteran Ralph Deese.

Deese who, gets around with an artificial leg, said he remembers the day when the city took everything he had left.

"I asked how we can recover our property, they said, 'You can't. We've taken it to the dump,'" said Deese.

A lawsuit filed Monday says two years ago Titusville officials raided homeless people's camps without official notice ... and left them with no way to get their possessions back.

"I said, 'We're taking it down today.' They didn't care, said Deese.

Deese said officers even took his dentures.
