A meth bust in Princeton back on June 27th left tenants living in the same apartment without a home.

The family of 5 was told that because their neighbor was cooking meth just on the other side of their walls, the whole building would have to be condemned.
59 News spoke to the father who had to move his family out in 3 hours. 

"The red cross put us in a hotel for 3 days but the thing is I feel like for a situation like this they should have something better," Reggie Simpson said.

The home is in princeton and Simpson says he didn't really know his neighbor. 

Kathy Wolfe owns a cafe right across the street and this meth bust came as no surprise to her and her customers.

They would sit on the deck and ask us when the drug dealing would stop across the street because it wouldn't take but a few minutes to see all the cars coming and going to know that drug dealing was going on," Wolfe said.

Simpson says none of this has been easy and he feels helpless. He will also continue his search for a new place to call home.

Here's a link to the original meth bust story.
