The owner of an Orrick property that apparently once served as a drug house will soon get a letter from the city asking that it be torn down.
The home, in the 400 block of West Elm Street, has been vacant for about a year, Police Chief Ray Dinwiddie told the board of Aldermen Monday.
“We can call this a drug house because the people who lived there were arrested for having drugs in the house,” he said.
The individuals, not named at the meeting, were incarcerated for related crimes, Dinwiddie said. One of those was released and then returned to custody on a probation violation, he said.
