Cross the bridge into Stonecroft Mobile and you'll see the underbelly of Kansas City. More than two dozen people call it home, but it's overflowing with trash, crime and squatters. "Last year it started getting bad, bad, bad," said Eva May Renaut, who lived here 11 years until her trailer burned down a few weeks ago. Now she returns only to feed her cats who aren't allowed where she's temporarily living. She said she's glad to be gone from Stonecroft. "We have stolen cars," Renaut said. "We have drugs. We have it all." Alan Ashurst, a Kansas City codes inspector in charge of illegal dumping, said the mobile home park is costing taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars to fight fires and crime. "As far as drains on city resources this is probably right up there in the top five," Ashurst said.
