Illegal Drugs in Tenant's Apartment
LVT Number: 14927
Landlord NYCHA terminated tenancy after drugs were found in tenant's apartment. Tenant appealed this decision. The court ruled against tenant. The decision was fair. Police with a search warrant found a bag with heroin in tenant's bedroom, along with another bag containing 50 to 100 Ziploc bags. NYCHA had presented believable testimony that tenant had illegal drugs in her apartment.
