Some Hunts Point tenants say they were unaware of anonymous drug tip line
Some Hunts Point tenants say they were unaware of the anonymous drug tip line the Bronx borough president launched last month.
Some tenants say drug dealers have taken over their buildings by hiding drugs in mailboxes. The residents add that they can smell the drugs in the stairwells. Some say the drug dealing would stop if the doors were fixed and the intercom worked.
To get drugs off the street, Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion Jr., launched a tip line for residents to anonymously report drug activity in their neighborhood. Many tenants say now that they know it exists they plan on using the tip line. Those residents hope that by calling the line, their complaints will lead to changes.
The number for the Anti-Drug Anonymous Tip Line is (718) 590-3551.
