Tenant evicted for using home as drugs den

Magenta Living has evicted a tenant for allowing her property to be used to store and distribute almost £100,000 worth of Class A and Class B drugs.
A joint investigation by Merseyside and Lancashire Police uncovered half a kilo of cocaine, 11 and a half kilos of amphetamine and a kilo of cannabis at the home of Ms Susan Faulkner in Woodward Road, Rock Ferry. Ms Faulkner had been a tenant for 27 years.
Due to the serious criminal activities, Magenta Living applied for, and were granted, an outright possession order at Liverpool Crown Court.
Anna Green, Magenta Living Enforcement Officer, worked in partnership with officers from Lancashire and Merseyside Police and said: “This case reinforces Magenta Living’s zero tolerance approach to breaches of tenancy.
“Although Ms Faulkner was not convicted for drug dealing, visitors to her home were and as a Magenta Living tenant, she was responsible for the actions of those visiting and living in her home.”
