Bought my house feb 2012 been living here for almost a year & a half. Great costal community nice neighborhood. I cleaned the house top to bottom before moving in one single box it took 1 month, it wasn't filthy I just have OCD!
During my cleaning I noticed bumps under the carpet along the wall but under the base board heater while using my vaccumes want to be meticulous because my youngest was crawling. I pulled back the carpet to check and it was beer bottle caps. My first thought was teenagers hiding it from parents no big deal. Also what made me think teenagers is basically every bathroom and bedroom door, door frame or door handle was broken!
A few months go by and now it's warm we start clearing up the yard and find nips all over the place stashed in bushes beer cans stashed etc. again I think teenagers.
duing a leisurely talk with my neighbor he starts telling me how before I moved in my house was a half way house for recovering addicts! And that it got shut down because a girl overdosed & died. She didn't die or get pronounced dead in my house but at the hospital she died. Very much freaked out but love my home until....
clearing out more of the yard to make my hubby a nice hammock area in the shade and under prly 4 feet of leaves & brush I rake out a used hypodermic needle! I flip out! What do I do?
The next week I spend my spare time cutting back all trees brush raking leaves pull out 20 more nips and another NEEDLE! This one had orange plastic covering the sharp end.
What do I do with them?! I don't want them on my property! I'm not putting them in my car! I don't want my name or address associated with drug parafanilia! My hubby & I are both working professionals and don't need to deal with this! I picked up the needles with gloves put in soda cants wrapped them in foiled then put it in a container.
What do I do if I find more? And both times the are they were found was in an area where my kids don't play! Their swing set and play area is in a grassy fenced in part of the yard!
