My neighborhood used to be a good place to live but now with all the people that have moved in across the street there have been junker cars lined up half way up the street and a lot more traffic at all times of the day/night wich seem to be drug related. For instance, a junky car drives up the street with 3 people inside. One gets out and goes inside the house then the driver drives around the block then picks them back up. this happens all times of the night and with many different types of people. The neighbors are probably in there 40's and they have about 6 non related people living in one house and two in a mobile home next door.
They seem to know when they need to move the vehicals because the local PD will chock their tires then they are moved about 2ft.

Any ideas on what to do? I talked to a police officer in a different city and he says to take it to someone who works in the city and not the police. Is this right?

The county commissioner.. is the answer here...there are county ordinances that if enforced,,,, can force people to have legal vehicles or get them gone...And I am betting there are city ordinances elsewhere....

Here in PA all vehicles have to have a current registration and inspection to be parked on a local roadway. We also have a eye sore law that states that you must keep you home, vehicle and personal property in good condition. It is one of those laws that is rarelly enforced but is on the books and if brought up to the right person, then something is done about it.

all the vehicals are legal and have current tabs but to have 9 vehicals on average parked on the side of the street that look like crap is making my neighborhood look like its the "Ghetto".

Dropping the passenger off, circling the block and coming back to pick him up. No doubt in my mind what it is. I don't know why you would be told not to contact you're local police. I had the the same problem in a place I once lived, same circumstances. I didn't care about the ugly cars. I reported the possible drug activity, they set on the house, and in no time they were busted and gone.

I also do not understand why this Officer told you not to talk to the police about this. It does appear to be a dope house so you should call and talk to the vice and narcotics division of your city and tell them exactly what you are seeing. You might even offer your home or property as a place for them to use if they need to. Understand they may already be aware of this house as well.

I lived in the same apartment complex as another officer on my shift. We used to have bbqs on a weekly basis on our days off. Everybody on our shift(usually 4-7 officers) would come by and take their lunch break. Before long there were some people that moved out and things stayed pretty quiet.

yeah, if you can't get any immediate response... def do some staking out of your own but remain unseen just in case theres more going on behind the doors. Don't endanger yourself!

The citizen has many tools at their disposal. Local city ordinaces, local police, narc's, housing inspectors, City council members, get on the agenda, State Narcotics, video, news media. You get the idea.......

If the neighborhood has a homeowner association, you can complain to them about the cars, They will get them moved. I know, it happens in our neighborhood. No one is allowed to park on the street. As far as your suspicion of drug traffic, I would think there have been complaints from other neighbors and they may be watching that house any ways. If not, you could tell them the police are watching their house and they will stop what they are doing for a while anyway.
