Second property owner cited using Clarksburg “drug house” ordinance

CLARKSBURG, W.Va. — Another property owner will face an Order of Abatement under the City of Clarksburg’s Crime-Free Rental Housing “Drug House” ordinance.

Judy Hood of Stonewood, WV is the second property owner to be cited with a rental property police believed was being primarily used as a drug house.

Police said the property at 402 Stealey Avenue in Clarksburg “was a place that extensive drug use was occurring.”

The residence will be placed under condemnation until Hood is able to meet requirements ordered by Clarksburg Municipal Court.

Hood is scheduled to appear before Judge John Martin later this month.

Drug house ordinances are currently in effect in Parkersburg, Martinsburg, Huntington, and Clarksburg.
