House of Domestic Horrors in Lenoir is under Scrutiny

On Friday, September 9 Superior Court Judge Susan Bray signed a consent judgment for a nuisance abatement action against a property on Oak Street in Lenoir that has years of history involving drug activity, disturbances, and death.

According to Lenore police chief Brent Phelps, this lawsuit and subsequent judgment should provide much needed relief for the town. He said that the number of calls for service, multiple overdoses, and most recently, a tragic death that occurred at this property has become a growing concern to the neighborhood for years. This judgment prohibits the property owner and any future owners of this property from operating or maintaining a public nuisance at this location or anyone else within the jurisdiction of North Carolina. If the property owner and operator do not follow the conditions of the agreement, the property will be subject to forfeiture.
