An animal cage is removed from an apartment declared a nuisance.
NORTH BEND, OH (FOX19) -
The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office executed a nuisance order Friday at an apartment building in the 100 block of Miami Avenue in North Bend.
The property owned and operated by Tisch Properties was seized and closed down, according to David Daughtery with the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office.
There was a large presence of law enforcement at the apartment building Friday morning as items were removed from the building, including a large dog kennel.
There were no arrests made, said officers.
The decision was made to close the apartments after numerous complaints were made concerning drug activity at the apartment building, according to Triffon Callos with the Hamilton County Prosecutors Office.
Two women were found dead with needles near their bodies on March, 4, 2018, inside one of the apartments, said Callos.
He said the coroner's report with the official cause of the women's deaths is expected to be released soon.
Callos said while charges are not expected to be filed, Judge Leslie Ghiz will have a hearing in the very near future about the building closure.
"The case is under seal and a hearing date has not been set," said Callos.
Prosecutor Joseph T. Deters commented, “I would like to thank Sheriff Neil and his staff for their assistance in this matter.”
