Neighbor: This is Detroit and we will come squat in your house if you're not home

DETROIT -

One night this week the lady of a house in Detroit come home to one helluva surprise.

There was a one heck of a party in her pad, but she never got the invite!

Three men had helped themselves to her gin and food.

They cooked up crab legs, shrimp and they even had a turkey in the oven, can you believe it?

And while they were fixing their feast they she says they were high as a kite.

The lady of the house screamed and they all ran out the house. Then she called the law.

According to the Detroit Police report the victim says her house was a hot mess.

A bunch of her stuff was stolen, including some very "sentimental" things.

Some of the men sitting at her dining room her table looked familiar.

She told detectives that two of them live right next door.

I spoke with the sister of the one of the men who was hanging out at the house. She says it was not his fault.

Curtrina: "Somebody was squatting in that house, the guy that was in there was squatting already, so he was inviting people over, because he was living there."

RJ,a relative, offers this:  "If you a home owner or renting a property or whatever. You don't leave your home for 3 or 4 months."

The women tells Fox 2 she was there last Tuesday and everything was intact.

RJ: "It's Detroit, Michigan... this is the hungry capital of the world and we will squat in your house."

Curtrina: "It was like a chill spot."

Wait, wait, wait...What?

Curtrina: "It was like a chill spot. Somebody going to invite you over to smoke some weed and we right next door."

I don't know what you think about this situation, but the people we interviewed implied that they think the homeowner is to blame, that she should know better than to leave her house for too long.

RJ: "Stay on your property before your copper come up missing."

RJ told me that he would never do that, but other people would.  Two men were placed under arrest the night the homeowner came home.  One man ran away.

    Report: health risks at some nail salons

    Monday, September 15 2014 10:28 PM EDT2014-09-16 02:28:27 GMT
    One of the most surprising findings in a report from the New York City public advocate is that city officials have virtually no authority over how nail salons are run. The city can't enforce standards like they do with restaurants, so it's clearly a case of beauty buyer beware. We get our nails done without thinking too much about it.
