Columbus Closing Three Nuisance Properties

Aug 13, 2020

The City of Columbus has secured court orders to board-up a south side drug house, a Franklinton area drug house, and a West Broad Street storefront operating as an illegal after-hours club during the COVID-19 shutdown in April. 

Authorites say the properties were the scene of repeated drug activity, drug overdoses, shootings, and  violence against women. The properties are located on 765 East Gates Street, 423 South Ogden Avenue, and the commercial portion of a  building in the 24 hundred block of West Broad Street.
