As I have posted a bunch of times already, my wife and I have relocated our family to a large parcel of land out in the country last year, after about two years of renovations and preparations. About a year and a half ago, I discovered that a neighbor -- a tenant, renting a tiny trailer in the woods on the lot abutting ours to the north -- had been using our land as a shortcut to the country store down the road for years, while the land was vacant. I noticed him the first time while I was up on my roof, so there was not much I could do about it before he was gone. The second time, I drove out to him in the pasture and informed him in no uncertain terms that he was trespassing and he admitted as much. He said that he was aware that the property was under new ownership and he could see that we were re-developing it and he suggested that maybe he would just cut through my woods instead. I made it explicitly clear that the boundary of my land was a creek running through the woods and that if he set foot on any dry land on my side of that creek, then he was still trespassing. We discussed the details until I was sure that I had made it clear that he understood where the boundaries are. He was compliant and he seemed like a just a mellow simpleton, so I left it at that and never heard from him again... Until yesterday, when I was unloading my truck and noticed him pop out of the woods down by the road. I drove down to meet him again, this time on the side of the road. I asked him if he remembered me and he said he did. I asked him if he remembered about my warning and he suddenly became loud and belligerent, cursing and denying that he had ever set foot on my property, then telling me that he had seen all of my trespassing signs and he would walk wherever he wanted, etc. Besides the obvious problem of having an unhinged stranger wandering my property at will, I have been building trails in the woods for my wife and two young sons. Simply put, I cannot have the three of them EVER coming across this weirdo in the middle of the woods. After telling her about my run-in, my wife is already wary of taking walks alone with the boys, which is her favorite thing to do out here. I spoke with a sheriff's officer who came out and filled out an incident report, but we don't know the guy's name and his address is literally a busted trailer in the middle of nowhere, so right now, I have no way of swearing out a warrant. The cops, obviously, aren't going to just arrest him unless he is actively trespassing, so I have to do some leg work to have this guy hauled into court. Has anyone here on TB had to deal with chronic, wanton trespassing before? I am a little freaked out by how aggressive and weird this guy was.
