btw, Long Beach PD is far more helpful and attentive than I had realized or had been led to believe. It just depends on how you approach things and who you approach the PD with.

thanks LBPD.

Police in general will be responsive to serious crime(including narcotics sales). Its their job and the specialized units that handle things like narcotics justify their continued existance by making arrest.

Police are not to responsive to things where making arrests is difficult. Non hot calls(suspect is not at scene) of property damage seem like a really big deal to the victims, but in actuality are a relatively low priority.

Bottom line is if you have narcotics sales going on in your neighborhood, contact the police because they will respond. It may take a few weeks, but they love situations like this.

One angle of appeal to the landlord, if drugs are being manufactured in the home, is that any property damage that is a result of illegal activity would be nulled in an insurance claim. So if they're growing pot and destroying the house doing so, it's out of pocket for repairs and that could add up to tens of thousands of dollars depending on what's been done. That includes repairing any electrical jerryrigging, duct work and especially extensive mold damage. If harder drugs are involved it might include the resultant damage from fire or a crackhouse explosion.

Yeah, "Hello? Is this my insurance agent?" "[Click.]"

Does he have $50K or so to risk on a drug dealing tenant?

I hope your joking. There's a difference between someone selling weed to their friends and someone who traffics from their place.
When I lived in E. Hollywood (Normandie and Hollywood - in case anyone on here knows that home I am talking about) there was a halfway house of sorts that was run by a group openly selling who knows what. It sucked. Walking past that house at night was sketchy in a neighborhood that wasn't that bad except for that one place. There were always people coming and going and look outs hanging around out front.
I often wondered why it went on for so long (a year?) before I went out to see everyone at the place lined up on the sidewalk with about 30 LAPD cars outside.
But that happened after someone unloaded an automatic weapon into the place @ 3am.
So yeah .. I love living around places that attract people who don't mind driving up and unloading a gun into your neighbors home. Makes me feel real safe.

Don't pay attention to the guy. He is N_O native New Yorker. My problem has been addressed, but Long Beach has more than it's fair share of low lifes and problems that go unaddressed. LB is one huge /ghetto with a few good areas to live in.
