ONONDAGA COUNTY, N.Y. -- An investigation into suspicious activity at a home in Fayetteville has led police to condemn the home and arrest the owner.
DeWitt Police say they received several complaints about high traffic in and out of a house on Hobson Avenue. After executing a search warrant, they discovered the owner, Edith Crofoot, 69, was selling prescription drugs, like hydrocodone and morphine, oftentimes to young adults.
The house is just blocks away from Jamesville-DeWitt High School, prompting police to act fast. They called in code enforcement, who wound up condemning the house. The SPCA was also brought in to handle more than 30 cats and four dogs that were in the residence.
Crofoot is now facing a charge of criminal sale of a controlled substance and is being held at the Onondaga County Justice Center on $10,000 bail. She's due back in court next month.
