NW Miami-Dade homeless sex offenders camp closed down

NORTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - Officials have cleared a homeless camp where hundreds of sex offenders lived in Northwest Miami-Dade, Monday.

Miami-Dade Police surrounded the homeless sex offenders camp site along Northwest 71st Street and 36th Court to make sure everyone was out.
