Police were out in force around the derelict Magruder garage for most of the evening last night following the death of a man in the vicinity of the building. Today police teams were searching the surrounding area for evidence and at 12:15pm a man was seen being arrested in the car park of the former Rock Garden restaurant. The arrested man was white, around 50, with a grey beard and straggly grey hair. He was handcuffed and driven away from the car park by two police officers in a PSPD police truck.
We wrote to the owners of the land adjacent the Magruder building a month or so ago asking them to instigate security patrols at their property as it had become an open-air encampment. After that we learned that the Rock Garden restaurant, which has been left empty and looks increasingly derelict contains nine mattresses. Neither the owners nor the City are doing anything effective to mitigate this situation. An election is coming up in November. Register and use your vote wisely.

Things that affect people in Palm Springs.
The Yes, Include Me! blog, is written by Jonathan Freeman with love, curiosity and a dose of cynicism about Palm Springs and the people who try to run it for people who live here for whatever period that may be.
