It’s hard to find affordable housing in Florida, and even more so in a pandemic. All the beaches so close, and of course, warm weather year round.
But there’s a solution if you’ve fallen on hard times, and accused of doing something you shouldn’t have, says the Polk County Sheriff’s Office.
On the Winter Haven agency’s Instagram page, a picture is posted of a picture of a “free one-bedroom apartment.”
The catch? It’s not such a hot property and it’s definitely not listed with some fancy real estate company.
The photo shows a stark space, but it has a bed, small window, metal sink and toilet.
Yes, it’s a cell, and not a big one.
The American Correctional Association standards call for cells to be a minimum of 60 square feet and Polk County’s looks in line with that number.
The caption on PCSO’s post: “Where the light is always on.”
In the comments section, someone wrote that they forget to mention the free meals.
Sounds like a real steal.
