    Mira Mesa homeowner, June Reyno, chains herself to her home in an attempt to defy eviction.

    June Reyno, her husband and their five dogs have lived in their Mira Mesa home for nearly 20 years. Now, they are being evicted, but June Reyno is not having it.

    She's defying the eviction by chaining herself to her home.

    The San Diego Sheriff's Department is expected to come out to the Reyno's home sometime Monday or Tuesday.  Reyno said she will remain chained to her home until "the California State Legislature elected officials respond to these massive evictions and foreclosures that are going on in our county."

    Reyno lost her job recently and the couple's salary was cut in half. They have an adjustable rate mortgage and can't afford the $5,800 monthly payments.

    Reyno said they were approved for a loan to buy back the property, but she claimed property manager Jeff Wagner apparently won't agree to these terms.

    The Reyno's future is unknown, but June Reyno stays strong.

    "We will not allow them to take this home from us," she said.
