Tenant caught growing drugs

Court action has been taken against a rogue tenant caught growing drugs in their Shoreline property. Despite pleas he couldn’t be evicted as he had only “done it once”, the area’s largest affordable housing provider took court action to gain possession of the property.

Just days before the hearing, the tenant chose to return their keys rather than face a Possession Order. But he was ordered by Grimsby County Court to pay costs incurred by Shoreline.

Shoreline housing crime prevention manager Sarah Freeman said: “Tenants convicted of growing or selling illegal substances in our properties will have enforcement action taken against them. “A criminal conviction, the loss of a home and an order for court costs sends a clear message that ‘once’ is one time too many.”
