Santa Cruz police near the end of a campaign to clear out illegal campsites
On a narrow strip of land between Highway 1 and Plymouth Street, Santa Cruz police officers Barnaby Clark, Mike Huynh and Sgt. Dan Flippo fan out as they approach a dingy blue tent with a maroon blanket draped over it.
Huynh draws his gun and holds it ready by his hip as Flippo calls out, “Police! Anybody home?”
