Hunter Biden appears to have moved out of the luxury $5.4million home he was renting in Venice Beach, California amid a crime and homelessness wave that has hit the beach-front Los Angeles city. 

The son of President Joe Biden was reportedly paying $25,000 a month to rent the three-story property on the Venice canals – just a block away from the beach. 

But on Monday, DailyMail.com spotted a moving truck outside the palatial home with furniture being loaded into it. Father-of-five Hunter, 51, moved into the stylish property with wife Melissa and their son Beau at the end of 2020. 

Residents in Venice Beach have complained of an increase of crime as homelessness in the area has risen during the pandemic.

The homeless population has mushroomed in Venice – in 2014 only 175 people lived rough and five years later that figure stood at more than 1,200 – but things have spiraled out of control in the last few months. 

Exclusive DailyMail.com photos from last month show tent-dwellers who have abandoned downtown LA’s Skid Row and the freeway ramps in Long Beach for Venice Beach, turning a short stretch of prime property just south of the Santa Monica border into a flashpoint between business interests and those forced from their homes. 

While tourists and locals still visit the iconic boardwalk – a place they have long shared with the weird and the wacky – visitors’ numbers have decreased as they must contend with an ever-growing army of homeless and the crime that accompanies them. 

Residents in the area – like Hunter have been considering moving, but property prices have dropped by anything between 10 and 30 percent.

Crocodile Dundee star Paul Hogan, 81, who lives in the area, warned the homeless away. ‘This is my house, not yours,’ he wrote on a note he posted on the gate of his $3.5 million Venice Beach home.

Hogan complained that he is homesick and desperate to return to his native Australia but doesn’t want to go through two weeks Covid quarantine. ‘I’m like a kangaroo in a Russian zoo, I don’t belong here,’ he said.

Secret Service officers sitting outside of Hunter’s home have had to contend with the stench from a small encampment on the other side of a parking lot

The encampments have crept closer to the famed picturesque Venice Canals.

Secret Service officers sitting outside of Hunter’s home have had to contend with the stench from a small encampment on the other side of a parking lot.

The tent city itself has its dramas just like any other human settlement. Last month a 30-year-old woman from Virginia gave birth in one of the oceanfront camps, the Venice Current reported. 

A homeless man was shot and injured on April 28. The gunman calmly walked away. The victim is not cooperating with police. Earlier the same week a tent was deliberately set on fire. One local woman talks of how she was chased by a man with a sword.

Cops sweep through on a regular basis, more to show they are a presence than to actually make arrests, say business owners on Ocean Front Walk,­ the official name of the boardwalk.

Hunter had moved to the 3,700 square feet property after he had been splitting his time between his home state of Delaware and his Hollywood Hills pad

Hunter was believed to be renting the property from Sweetgreen co-founder and CEO Jonathan Neman for $25,000 a month

The home also had a terrace furnished with outdoor seating, a fireplace, and breath-taking views of the idyllic neighborhood

When DailyMail.com visited Venice Beach, there were syringes — one with a needle still attached — nestling in the sand in a children’s play area on the beach, emblematic of how the people for whom the area was designed are now being pushed out. 

‘I can’t even walk my dog or go bike riding along the Venice Beach bike path anymore, longtime Venice resident Heather Sullivan said. ‘It’s too scary and just too violent.

‘We have had numerous dog thefts and it’s just heartbreaking and many of the animals in these encampments are not treated well.’
