  • 1. July 24, 2007 Perry and Betty C Wallace 3217 Loftyview Dr High Point, NC 27260 This letter serves as formal notice that property owned by you, namely, 1900 Apex Pl. High Point, North Carolina has been used in such a manner that it greatly concerns the surrounding community and the High Point Police Department. You need to be aware of the following activity at that location: Multiple purchases of illegal narcotics have been made from persons at this address by the High Point Police Department over the past several weeks. The police department seeks your cooperation and assistance in addressing this situation. Activity of this sort can place your property in jeopardy of forfeiture. Chapter 19 of the North Carolina General Statutes allows for the abatement of nuisances through civil proceedings. Specifically, Chapter 19 defines public nuisance and allows the District Attorney, Attorney General, local government, or private citizen the right to seek court action to abate or stop a nuisance. Possible penalties include forfeiture of property, court ordered closure of property, permanent restrictions on use of the property, payment of civil fines and accounting fees, liens and invalidation of leases. I wish to offer you an invitation to meet with me at the High Point Police Department on Tuesday, August 14, 2007 at 4:30 P.M. We will discuss your rights and responsibilities as property owners as well as options that may help you avoid similar circumstances in the future. If you have questions concerning this matter please contact Captain Jim Baldwin at (336) 887-7849. J. Douglas Henderson Guilford County District Attorney
