Local Police are requesting action against a Tucson apartment complex claiming
the criminal activity has spun out of control and become a public nuisance.
It is reported that daily police presence is usual at Retro City Apartments.
From public disturbances to
gang violence, the calls made to 911 from this site ranged over 400 just last year with
81 of those resulting in an arrest, according to
NBCnews.com. City officials even have a separate binder to log in activity from just
that one apartment complex. The building has become a breeding ground
for crime and both officials and citizens are concerned it may need special
attention from the city.
The landlord for Retro City, who lives in California himself, has been
contacted with this concern about his property's involvement in criminal
activity and been ordered to clean up the crime. In a statement to
News 4, Tucson's local news channel, the landlord's attorney stated that
there are being measures taken to increase communication and cooperation
between his client and the city officials to make Retro City safer for
its inhabitants and their neighbors alike. Tucson city officials have
responded by stating that Retro City has one month to make sure the crime
is reduced in the complex in order to avoid further action from the city.
While Tucson works with Retro City to reduce crime, violence is given very
serious consequences by the state of Arizona if convicted. There are both
state and city actions taken against those charged with violent crimes.
