Drug users leaving behind needles

Drug users leaving behind needles

YAKIMA, Wash. -- KIMA heard your complaints and looked into a neighborhood where drug users are leaving behind needles and other paraphernalia. It's a sort of drug camp people say is out of control.

The property at Front and Walnut Streets is owned by the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad. KIMA called the managers. They blame it on trespassers. The company reported the trouble to police. Yakima cleanup crews said they find dozens of needles each time they stop by.

"I'm bothered by the fact that they have that choice that they can just do it out here in the open and not really be concerned," said Stuart Stacy.

The railroad company insists it monitors the property regularly.
