Police Find Squatters in a House Full of Syringes

A neighbor in Albuquerque, New Mexico tips police off, leading police to a house full of squatters, shooting heroin.  

According to police, the house was full of syringes, including one loading full of heroin.  The house was piled with trash and there was no running water.  The occupants had also busted to electrical meter, so that they were stealing power.  

Three people were arrested on outstanding warrants when the police entered the home.

I have been writing as long as I can remember, even carrying tattered notebooks with me through the streets and strip clubs of New Orleans, in the midst of my heroin addiction. I lived a life saturated in heroin until Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans, leaving me to fend for myself, eventually facing my demons and coming face to face with my addiction. I have been clean for five years, and since then I have become a mother, graduated college, and started a writing career. I have a B.A. in Mass Media Communication, with a minor in Journalism. I have also written one published book, Through Both Hell and High Water: A Memoir of Addiction and Hurricane Katrina, which tells the story of those dark days I spent in New Orleans after the storm, battling with addiction amidst a natural disaster. I am the blogger and news curator for RecoveryNowTV, and I love sharing the stories of the world, as well as my own personal journey, with my readers. I hope that my words can touch others out there, struggling with addiction.
