A homeless man sleeping in a hammock was arrested at a home in Leesburg which is on the National Register of Historic Places.
A mowing crew found 36-year-old Robert Allen at about 11:30 a.m. Thursday at the Mote-Morris House, one of the oldest existing homes in the city having been built in 1892.
The city workers called the Leesburg Police Department. Allen had been banned from the historic property in 2020.
A criminal history check revealed Allen is on probation through 2022 after being convicted of charges of grand theft and drug possession. He was booked without bond at the Lake County Jail due to the fact he is on probation.
