Owner of Maple Ridge condo units disavows responsibility for drug-related activity
A landlord who owns most of the units in a Maple Ridge condominium complex is under fire from residents, police and district officials, who say most of the drug-related crime in their city originates in his run-down suites.
"My kids have found two kitchen knives on our property," said Shona Hendrycks, who lives next door to the complex with her husband and three children.
Jack Athwal owns and rents out the majority of the units in Northumberland Court, which several neighbours said is an eyesore, a fire-trap and a crime hub.
