Tenants charged, jailed
MOUNT VERNON — The prosecuting attorney has filed a court order to compel a landlord to evict two tenants facing drug charges.
Knox County Prosecuting Attorney Chip McConville Thursday filed a complaint in common pleas court seeking to close apartment A at 807 N. Mulberry St., due to an alleged nuisance to the public from ongoing drug activity.
McConville said the nuisance has been perpetrated by Edward Horn, 59, and Rose Hayes, 51, two of the tenants of the residence. There is no indication the owners of the property, listed as Thomas Cennamo and Bess Hopple, were aware of the drug activity, McConville said.
