So he was running a string of rental properties? A serial tenant?!?

You would think that a little more skill in home wiring would have saved him thousands in legal costs... and a felony conviction.

Was it one of the other suspected grow houses in the area? Will you be getting a share of the Crimestoppers bounty fund?

Glad these horrible neighbors are gone T-Al!

I think I will go kiss my neighbors on either side today. Actually, I do want to talk to the young couple to the left of me. I arrived home yesterday to see a granite installer with truck in their driveway, many men working and a rubble pile of sinks and laminate. Maybe they will invite me in to see their new installation.

It was a town or two away from us. I'm glad he didn't get busted related to any whistle-blowing that we did. We figure he must have had both houses going at the same time.

From my brief conversation with him, he didn't seem very smart at all.

One of the signs of a drug house is barking aggressive dogs.

Thank your lucky stars they weren't meth cookers. Were I you I would gather the neighbors to put together a strategy to prevent vagrants/other druggies from moving while the house is vacant. Have a sit-down with your local police agency to explore options. Maybe approach the owner with a temporary renter that would be a good renter at a discount until the foreclosure process is completed, assuming that the place is safe. You don't want to go from bad neighbors to awful neighbors.

IMHO those who rent to grow or cook operations should be convicted as well. Leases give the owner the right to periodically inspect the premises, they should do that particularly if the neighbors complain about tenants.
