PD: Gun Sparks Apartment Controversy
A Port Washington resident takes issue with a neighbor who has a gun — despite the weapon being stored in a safety deposit box at the bank.
A Port Washington man who will soon face eviction proceedings has been causing quite the ruckus at his apartment because of a neighbor who owns a gun — even though the woman said she does not store it at her residence.
Police responded to the residence at 7:13 p.m. March 4 after a dispute was taking place between a man and a woman in the apartment complex' laundry room, according to the police report. The woman was doing her laundry when the man entered, eventually beginning to argue with her about owning a gun; the woman said she felt "intimidated" and yelled back in hopes he would back down.
This is the second day in a row that police had made contact with this man about the issue, the report said. On this day, he did appear "quite intoxicated." Police advised the man not to contact the woman again, or it would result in either a citation or an arrest.
Police followed up the next day, and the woman said she had not been at her apartment and therefore had not seen the man, the report said. The landlords of the property told police they are aware of problems with this tenant and were in the process of evicting him.
