Woman evicted after blaming poltergeist for party noises
A mother, her son and her boyfriend have been evicted from their Wolverhampton home after two years' worth of complaints
The family was evicted from Warsash Close by ALMO Wolverhampton Homes' anti-social behaviour team, backed-up by officers from the East Park neighbourhood policing team.
The move came after residents raised concerns about noise, shouting and arguing in the street, pungent smells of cannabis and groups of youngsters gathering in large, intimidating groups.
The neighbourhood policing team says it has worked tirelessly over the last two years to try and engage get the family to change their ways.
Sergeant Steph Bates said: "This case proves that those who commit crimes or act in an intimidating and continuously anti-social manner face more than just a criminal record for their acts. West Midlands Police will work closely with partner agencies to secure evictions so that law abiding neighbours can live free from fear."
Councillor Elias Mattusaid added: "This is a great result for residents of Warsash Close and it shows that the council and Wolverhampton Homes won't tolerate anti-social activities in our homes.
"It takes time to secure evictions like this despite our best efforts. We would really like to thank the officers who persistently visited the property and to the residents that have been patient with us."
Wolverhampton Homes manages 23,500 properties on behalf of the city council.
