Updated: 4:15pm with exclusive police information.

BOCA RATON, FL ( — has confirmed that Boca police and Bank of America officials re-took possession of the “mansion” at 580 Golden Harbour Drive. The squatter identified as Andre Barbosa — known as “Loki Boy” — was not in the home at the time of the seizure.

No one was arrested. No charges are pending.

“When you have a trespass investigation, the owner of the property tells the person their trespassing and they have to leave,” Officer Sandra Boonenberg, Boca Police spokeswoman told “If they leave, end of story. If they don't, they face misdemeanor charges. Since no one was here, we have no issues at this point”

Bank of America, according to public records, owns the home.

As reported, the 23-year-old known as “Loki Boy” cited “adverse possession” to claim the home several weeks ago. In layman's terms, it is statute in effect in several states — including Florida — that requires someone to keep the property in their possession for several years. In Florida, the magic number is seven — and then the “adverse possessor” would be required to pay all of the taxes owed on the property.

Barbosa filed the required paperwork with the Palm Beach County Clerk of Courts, but Bank of America apparently provided proof that it — and not Barbosa — actually owns the property.

Bank of America has owned the property since records suggest it went into foreclosure last summer.

The property is valued at just over $2-Million.
