Druggie tenants are landlord’s nightmare

Druggie tenants are landlord’s nightmare

A run-of-the-mill drug bust took a novel turn over the weekend as a police raid saw the arrest of not only two drug users but their landlord as well.

Police said they swooped in on the apartment where two men, both 22, were known to regularly be using drugs.

But after confiscating their yama, drug paraphernalia and motos, they also slapped the cuffs on their landlord for providing the drug den. All three were charged by the court on Saturday.

The men confessed but the 45-year-old landlord pleaded ignorance to their actions. NOKORWAT
