Things are getting so expensive in San Jose that people are now stealing their neighbors’ water

A San Jose couple returned to their home near Branham Lane Thursday night to discover that someone had been in their backyard — apparently to steal water.

What Lori Kamal and her husband discovered was a series of connected hoses running from their backyard for about a half mile, toward an encampment.

“There were some homeless that pulled water by using their water hose,” she said. “They pulled it up the creek for a half mile, extracting water from our residence.”
