ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  A homeless man is no longer living underneath the bypass overpass on Slappey.

State prisoners showed up Wednesday morning to remove Colin Bailey's possessions. They hauled off what he agreed to discard, and gave him until noon to remove the rest of his belongings.

By noon, he and all his things were gone.

"They make it hard on the homeless people," said Bailey. "We're not going out here killing people, breaking into people's houses. We're trying to survive. We're trying to survive out here and everywhere we go they tag right along behind us and catch us gone and throw away all our stuff. We got to live somewhere."

Code enforcement officers told him last week he had to move from under the overpass Bailey told us he plans to try to do some work for a motel room in exchange for a room.
