When the police in North Port banned reporters and journalists from parking on the street in front of the Laundrie house, the news crews faced a dilemma. The neighbors of Brian Laundrie spotted a windfall.

Make no mistake, life has not been easy for the people in the neighborhood, with tempers flaring.

But, as with any crisis, there is money to be made. Crews couldn’t park their trucks on the street, reporters needed a place to set up and according to TMZ, the neighbors responded. “Catering to the media with tents to shield them from the elements, internet access, chairs, water and of course, bathrooms.” Several of the neighbors have made this deal with media members and the rates are rumored to be as much as $3500 a week. So when you see the news footage of the Laundrie house and the news crews are set up in driveways and yards – now you know the story.
