MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - DeLois Casey has been trying to get a lot in the Davidson subdivision near Orange Mound declared a nuisance since 1965.
Casey got so fed up, she called Action News 5 last week, and three days later, the house was boarded up.
"Channel 5 responded right away and we really appreciate what they've done," Casey gushed.
It took several people to carry out the effort. After Action News 5's Justin Hanson reported on this public nuisance Friday, Memphis Police Director Larry Godwin went into action.
"He contacted us at Organized Crime and wanted something done about it and that's exactly what we did," explained Colonel A.C. Knight of the Memphis Police Organized Crime Unit.
