Liverpool drug dealer to be evicted


Published by Riverside for Riverside in Housing and also in Communities

A convicted drug dealer is to be evicted from his home in Liverpool while he serves his sentence in prison.

Gary Ambrose, 35, was found guilty less than two weeks ago of possession with intent to supply amphetamine and cannabis and given a six month custodial sentence.

Now Riverside has won a case to gain possession of his house in Burns Street, Bootle, after District Judge Bever found in favour of the housing association at Liverpool Civil Court.

Mr Ambrose had previously received a 12 month community order for possession of firearms.

Mr Ambrose’s home was also a magnet for undesirable characters with one of his visitors having been sentenced to 10 months in prison for assault on his girlfriend at the property in December 2010.

Allegations were also made that young boys who visited the property were being groomed as drug runners.

Riverside Director Tom McGuire said: “Those who flout the law in this way, using their home as a place from which to commit the most serious acts of anti-social and criminal behavior will be brought before the courts and if Riverside has anything to do with it, they will be evicted. We will not hesitate to work with the police and others to prevent these people from making life hell for other law abiding residents.”

If you are the victim of or witness to anti-social behaviour call Riverside on 0845 111 0000.
