Woman Arrested after Raid at Condemned Home
DAYTON -- A call from neighbors leads Dayton Police to home filled with suspected stolen TVs and drugs.
It happened on Third Street on the city's east side.
One woman was arrested after Dayton police said they found several dozen flat-screen TVs in a house with no running water, and no electric.
However, the woman didn't go quietly.
"Ma'am is that your stuff in there?" asked a reporter. "No, it is not," said Sharon France as Dayton Police walked her out in handcuffs.
France was arrested after Dayton Police found truckloads of TVs inside this East Third Street home.
This was her explanation.
"The man that lives in the house also is a TV repair man. That's what he does for a living," said France.
"It's really unusual to have all those electronics in the house without any power in it," Dayton Police Sgt. Steve Bauer said.
Officers received a tip saying there was no running water or electric inside the home.
Officers said they also found evidence of cocaine and heroin.
Neighbors noticed something wasn't right.
"Females just walking up and down the streets, I mean we have children playing in the field over there you find needles," said a neighbor who wanted to remain anonymous.
While we were there we noticed several people walking up to the door and knocking, despite the signs saying the home was condemned.
"It's not something I want my kids being used to seeing as a daily thing you know, because that's not how life is," said the neighbor.
While neighbors have their suspicions about what was going on in the home, they're just happy someone said something to police.
"It's obvious, it's heroin. You know what I'm saying and that's something that is taking over Dayton. The more you get it off the streets the safer our people are gonna be. It's better for our community here," the neighbor said.
The house was condemned because of no water or electric service.
Sharon France, the woman arrested in the house, is now being held on a theft charge.
