Residents in Pacific Beach have been complaining about a stretch limousine that they say hasn't moved in days.

The white, Ford Excursion limo is parked on Chalcedony Street, and people who live on the street said they think people are living inside.

“I don’t want to actually walk by it, I don’t feel safe at all,” said a woman who lives across the street and who did not want us to use her name. “It’s jam-packed with random stuff. I think people are actually living out of it. I’ve seen one dog.”

Priscilla Garcia, who also lives on Chalcedony, saw a tow truck dump it in front of her house.

“He was leaving his big limousine here, he said it wasn’t working for I don’t know how long now, but I don’t know, it was a little weird,” Garcia said.

10News has repeatedly visited the car, and we even ran the license plate in order to call the owner, but have been unsuccessful in reaching him.

According to the San Diego Police Department, living in a vehicle is illegal. It is also illegal to leave an abandoned vehicle in the same spot for more than 72 hours.

Police have an entire vehicle abatement unit dedicated to issues like this, however, their reports are complaint-driven. That means, you have to report it.

If you think there is an abandoned vehicle parked on your street, here is where you can file a complaint:

There is also a number to call: 858-495-7856. However, the reporting person needs to know as much information as possible about the vehicle, such as the license plate number, year, make model, color, description of vehicle and address of where the vehicle is located.
