112 E. Oak - Ecstacy Arrest
How did 112 E. Oak get rented to a fraternity? When Christopher Song was arrested Friday morning with $6000 worth of ecstasy, this Edward Cooke property was reportedly home to Lambda Phi Epsilon (Purdue's Asian American Fraternity). Don't you wonder whose names were on the rental certificate in this R-1U neighborhood?
Was the fraternity's name on the rent check? Would a reasonable and prudent owner have discovered he had rented to a fraternity before it became a local drugstore? Will anyone now be evicted? The proposed Good Neighbor Ordinance of 2007 defined "disorderly houses" and made provision for pulling the rental certificates of violators. Should that portion of the ordinance be revisited?
