Residents of Tibbs Senior Building in Englewood are being accused of a variety of drug crimes and allowing residents and nonresidents to engage in acts of prostitution in their apartments.
Two women have been arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia. The most common drug being used in the senior citizen building that housed men and women whose ages range from 50 to the late 70s was crack cocaine.
One man has been charged with maintaining a nuisance by allowing people to enter his apartment to use drugs and engage in sexual acts with prostitutes.
The accused criminal activity made the uninvolved residents fearful of using common areas. Police have been receiving complaints from the residents for the better part of a year now. They sent in undercover officers to examine the situation and have regained the building for residents who live by the rules.
