Randall Jeppesen, KSL Newsradio The final few residents of a Spanish Fork mobile home park wish scavengers would leave the area alone, at least until they're gone.

Brenda Vaifo'ou takes care of her two young girls here and looks around and what's left of the mobile home park. "Oh, it's horrible. I feel like a tornado has hit," she said.

The area is being torn down for new development, but as people move out scavengers move in. She says sometimes 40 to 50 cars per day slowly drive by looking for something they want. "Yeah, it feels really creepy. It's like, we don't even feel like we're safe anymore," Vaifo'ou said.

She says many of the people that moved out left things they still want to come back for. "You know, everyone wants something for free, but wait 'til we're gone," she pleaded.

Vaifo'ou says sometimes it feels like living in a freak show.
