Four malnourished mentally disabled adults were found chained to a boiler in a locked Tacony basement room that was too small for an adult to stand up straight and also reeked of waste from the buckets they used to relieve themselves, police said Sunday.
Three people were arrested Linda Ann Weston, 51, and Thomas Gregory, 47, both of the 2500 block of N 29th Street and 49-year-old Eddie Wright who is homeless.
Officers were investigating a report of squatters in a building on the 4700 block of Longshore Avenue Saturday when they found three men and a woman in a 15-by-15-foot room behind a steel door that was chained shut.
