Insufficient Proof of Illegal Sale of Drugs from Apartment
LVT Number: #24450
Landlord sued to evict tenant for permitting the use of his apartment for the illegal sale of drugs. Police, using a search warrant, had seized cocaine, cash, and plastic bags from the apartment, and tenant's son had been sentenced and jailed for criminal possession of a controlled substance. Since summer 2011, landlord had received numerous complaints from other tenants and building emloyees about drug-related activity inside the apartment. The court ruled against landlord after a trial.
